From Lockport, it was a short drive to #59 highway and then I headed south to Birds Hill Provincial Park and then turned off and headed into the park. I was getting hungry by then and although I planned on walking before eating, I decided to stop and eat first. I figured my boots would be too muddy after walking the trails, to be able to enter the restaurant. So, I talked myself into stopping at Pine Ridge Hollow for breakfast. Their food is so good!
When back on the road, I saw a hawk at the top of a tree and stopped for one quick photo. For hawks, I generally just zoom a bit to snap a photo and if he stays a few more seconds, I can zoom in more. He only stayed for the one, but I probably wouldn’t have got the shot at all if I had tried to zoom in more than I did. So, this photo is cropped a fair amount.
I decided to start on this trail today – but I didn’t get far when I realized that most of the paved path was buried under quite a bit of snow/ice/water.
I stopped at the information board and took one photo from the viewpoint before getting back in the car.
Instead of walking around the lakes from here, I decided to drive to the lakes and walk around them from there.
More from this day tomorrow.
