The ‘beaches’ of Waubaushene Beaches Nature Reserve are ancient and historic, not contemporary. Looking down from this hill are several ledges which once were margins of an ancient lake with different names depending on the era. It was Algonquin Lake, Nipissing Lake, Lake Payette and more. In walking up the hill, it felt like we were passing the remains of land-intensive farm -terracing.
The deer scat was everywhere but we didn’t see any actual deer. It didn’t help that my son, who loved the walk, also loved yelling and fighting any errant tree branches (and my ankles) with a stick he found.
At the Pine and Albin intersection is a Tay Trail access point. The trail is great for walkers, cyclists or any speed in between and I think it is all as well paved as this photo suggests.
I look at a rock that has been folded like this and finally wonder what geology is all about.
