kissing bridge trailway

We rode about 40 km today from Guelph to West Montrose and back along the Kissing Bridge Trailway which runs through some beautiful rural areas. There is a nice little store run by Mennonites in West Montrose where you can get ice cream and berries to refresh before the ride home. Map of the trail right here.

the devil's well

finding this glacial pothole, one of the world's largest, in Rockwood CA takes a bit of off trail hiking but, if you don't fall off the cliffs, you are rewarded with a unique view of a landscape surprisingly rough so near to home.

it's said you could stand two buses on end inside it. whoever said that is not talking to me.

bridge sentry

we cycled the excellent rail trail from Elora to Lake Belwood. one footbridge over the Grand housed a swimming party.

there were several young teenagers hanging out below the far end of the bridge. I was so tempted to say 'trip trap, trip trap'
