So I will warn you now, this blog post is going to be photo heavy. A couple of weeks ago, me and Adam did a 2.5 km hike at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area here in Sudbury. The day was gorgeous; clear skies and warm with a cool breeze. The trail we choose was beautiful and so incredibly magical looking.
We spotted a few Garter Snakes during our walk. This one stopped near us and we were quiet enough to grab a picture before it slithered off. No other creatures were spotted except for a few ducks, but we did see numerous trees that had been chewed up by beavers and porcupines (I just found out that porcupines eat tree bark). The trees near the main lodge at the entrance of the conservation area had chicken wire around the bottom half of the trunks to protect them from the tree-eaters!
I ended up with wet and muddy shoes because the ground was pretty wet. This trail reaches the top of Mount Ramsey at one point so you get a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. There were mossy parts all over the rock and some of the puddles over top of the moss looked so cool. It was like a little underwater world.
Lake Laurentain was beautiful!
I want to go back at least once more before the snow comes. There's a few other trails that I'd like to check out.
