Back On The Old Railroad Bed

Regarding a question from yesterday, there are canoes for rent in the Park, particularly at places like Canoe Lake, where you can even hire the services of a guide for a day trip out on the lake. Here are two more shots from the old railbeds as I showed you the other day. The trail is used by cyclists, hikers, and even by canoe portagers going from one lake or river to another by a footpath. Track And Tower trail, which has an extension out here for campers in the nearby campgrounds, is a splendid trail that follows old railbeds and ascends a cliff for a splendid view of Cache Lake.



A reminder to City Daily Photo members: the theme day for October is Movement.
