Twelve people came out to hike the Ministik trail. The group was almost evenly split between the “Smell the Roses” group and the regular hikers.
The leaves have suddenly turned colour. Asters seem to be the last flower in bloom. Everything else is seeds and berries.
We discovered the source of those cone-shaped burrs that stick to our socks (it’s agrimony), we found low-bush cranberries at the edge of the bog, and we spotted a huge wasp nest that surely can’t get much bigger at this stage of the season.
Between glimpses of the beaver ponds and the wonders of the enchanting mossy bog, it was a fabulous day with great company.
