«Minerva Mountain Trail»

My dad and I hiked up to Perseverance Lake yesterday (Sep. 25th), then on up to the top of Ward Mountain. The trail continues beyond where we stopped. It goes across Minerva Mountain, but the boardwalk ended at the top of Ward Mountain and got really mucky. Click an image to view full.

Here's Perseverance Lake. It's bigger than what you can see in the photo.

This is what the trail's boardwalk looks like. Most of the trail is like this, through varying densities of trees.

Here's the view from the top of Ward Mountain. That's the old pulp mill you can see, it has been shut down for years.

Looking in a different direction, you can see Connel Lake (the big one), and just up and to the right of it you can see Talbot Lake.

  1. What an amazing outing.

    2 hearts this time... Ok, random 80's song just popped into my head "2... of ...hearts, 2 hearts that beat as one". Sorry. You have no clue do you?

    Am I deja vu'ing? Have we seen the "top of Ward Mountain" image before?

  2. @ Monique: You're right, I have no clue...

    That picture was taken on September 25th 2008. So no, it hasn't been seem before. You might be thinking about one of the pictures from the top of Deer Mountain.
