After a ten year hiatus, my hubbie and I went back to Killbear Park for a few days of camping. Or, sort of camping, if you count an RV as an oversized tent with running water. With dogs, kayaks, hiking boots, camera and of course, a great deal of liquid refreshment, we spent five great days at Killbear. And because it is so early in the season, we had the beaches and trails all to ourselves. What bliss!
Of course, I had to experiment with my camera – and here are some of the results!
A beautiful sunset over one of the beaches at Killbear
A ribbon of light sparkles on the water. You just have to go for a sunset stroll when it looks like this!
The Boardwalk on Twin Points Trail beckons you to enter the forest
Water lilies reach out and cover the planks of the boardwalk
Intricate fungus blanket fallen trees
Tiny green spears pierce the forest floor everywhere you look - if you look carefully!
These wee trilliums beside an old stump looked like a magical setting
I wish I knew the names of these lovely plants. There weren't many of these along the trail, but their beautiful colour drew the eye of all those who passed by.
Close to the forest floor, you could find cloud bursts of white flowers if you got down on your knees!
Boulders slumber throughout the park, like ancient giants nestled into the ground. For all that they are rocks, they still provide a source of food for lichen and other sturdy plant life.
At the end of the trail, a timid deer peeked out from a hidden glen. What a lovely way to end a beautiful hike.
