Adventure Bound

Last fall I discovered McCrae Lake while searching for an adventure activity near the cottage. The cottage is great, but I can only relax so long before looking for something to do. Fall at McCrae Lake was beautiful and led to my first HIGH cliff jumping experience – like 82 feet high! Spring at McCrae Lake did not disappoint.  McCrae Lake has a reputation for more rowdy campers because of its accessibility…. Read More

“That is my favourite sound,” I said. “What is?” “Just listen,” I explained and as we stopped talking the sound of frogs calling through the forest became clear. For me their chirping is a reminder of summer camping trips deep in the bush, paddling down winding rivers under the hot sun or hikes on a crisp spring morning as the sun warms the forest.  It is the dawning of a new season….

My highest skydive is 14,000 and now I can say the highest I have stood on earth is 15,953 feet high.  An unique achievement which is thanks to my visit to Cotopaxi Volcano in Ecuador. We visited Cotopaxi during our G Adventures tour in Ecuador.  I would highly recommend a visit if you are ever in that area of Ecuador. The volcano is often active (one of the most active in Ecuador… Read More

Adventure does not necessarily mean travelling the world. People often forget about the hidden gems in our own backyards – I am a culprit of this too. So when a friend told me about an abandoned water park and hotel I could visit within a 30 minute drive of home, I was pretty excited. The location is Prudhommes Landing – once a popular destination teeming with visitors. Now stands a dark decaying… Read More

  I think we can agree his winter has been a downer for winter activities. Here is hoping that the coming snowstorm also means more winter activities are on the horizon. I may not have been able to do any skiing or snowshoeing this Christmas holiday, but I did get in some hiking. My new favourite spots is officially Belfountain Conservation area. A beautiful spot to visit in the summer or winter… Read More

As the fall season comes to a close (although it is still awful warm here for December), I have been trying to find some fun adventures close to home.  The Halton Agreement Forest and Hilton Falls happen to be a short drive away. We decided to explore some of the agreement forest before continuing to the falls. The forest is beautifully groomed and an easy flat hike. It also has picnic areas… Read More

  A late fall Friday afternoon was the perfect opportunity to visit Scenic Caves for the Eco Adventure tour, we also decided to try the ‘Thunderbird Twin Zip Line.’ The Eco Adventure Tour is a fun mix of hiking, tree top trekking, a few zip lines and a short tour of the caves. Personally I think the fall season is the best time to visit the caves because the colours are beautiful… Read More

Quiet holiday Mondays have a way of helping to discover hidden treasures. One of those treasures is Rattlesnake Point. The sky was crystal clear and for May it was a beautiful hot morning. It was not a day to stay inside. But what could we do? Luckily I live a short drive from Rattlesnake point and have yet to visit. The park is run by Conservation Halton and costs $6.75 to enter….
