An off sort of day …

A sort of blah day lesving Wiarton yesterday. Weather was fine. Bugs minimal. But beyond the newly-opened Disappearing Stream property, the Trail was very similar all the way up the high coast: rocky, tricky, and half poison ivy …  Both of us felt off; we didn’t talk much — until I got onto religion … which picked things up momentarily …

Leaving Wiarton, I think I had a 12.5kg base wt pack + 4.5kg food + 6kg water … That’s a lot of water to carry … I still am packing my fears …

Caught in the act of disappearing — The Disappearing Stream goes into a hole in the limestone and comes up several hundred metres away

  1. I’m hoping the disappearing ash is not disappearing into emerald ash borers? The woods around Wyburne are very much white ash, mixed with sugar maple. On older maps, there was a feature somewhere around there called Swan Lake. More modern versions have instead a little squiggle called Swan Lake Drain. My mom always found that very poignant.
