On Sunday I went for a hike with friends on the Rae Trail which is north of Holland, Manitoba and a couple of hours drive from my home.
It was supposed to be a 15 km (9.5 miles) so we packed a lunch which we devoured an hour and a half into the hike. What tastes better than food eaten outside!
The leaves are in full autumn colour right now.
From here we could see the Assiniboine River below us in the distance.
Some of the beautiful red foliage is Poison Ivy.
Taking a rest at about the 9th mile. The trail was not well marked and there were lots of ATV trails that confused us so we ended up walking in circles a bit.We did know that if we kept walking more or less east we'd end up at the highway and the car. We eventually did but a mile south of where the car was parked.
It's very sandy country. This was a long slide that we could have gone down but that would have meant climbing back up. Maybe if we had found it earlier in the day...
We ended up walking for about 18 km (11 miles) and enjoying every minute of it. I do think a GPS might have been a good idea though.
