Ennismore Waterfront Park

A couple weeks back I took the boys for a short hike to the Ennismore Waterfront Park and Heritage Trail. The last time we were there, the bugs were out in full force and sent us running back to the car after only walking for a minute or so. Hiking is one of those things…

Camping at Warsaw Caves Conservation Area

Last weekend, a couple close friends and I went camping at Warsaw Caves Conservation Area near Peterborough. We spent a better part of the afternoon hiking around and shooting some photos.

We were told that there wasn’t much to photograph along the trail, so I thought it would be a challenge. It was true, there wasn’t really anything that  popped out, but if you looked a little closer, photo opportunities…
