Twenty people came out to hike the trails of Miquelon Park on this Victoria Day long weekend Sunday.
The terrain here is “knob and kettle”, a complex array of mounds and depressions resulting from the melting glacier of 10 thousand years ago. The result is a picturesque mix of forests, slopes, channels and ponds and a new view at every turn.
We saw a patch of morel mushrooms emerging along a path. We also saw early blue violets, the white Canada violet, saskatoon blossoms, and the rare wild clematis. Thanks to Alison, we identified the sound of an ovenbird.
Thanks to Irene and Scott for leading the hike. You can find more pictures on Flickr.
