Mid-Week Hiking Update

We've been doing great at getting out and hitting the trails and seeing the waterfalls this week. Some of these hikes are only 4-5 km but there are hundreds of stairs up and down the escarpment as well as the hills without stairs. It is definitely a work out and the reward is the beauty of the waterfalls.

Spring has arrived in my neck of the woods and yesterday was even summer-like.

Monday night was Borer's Falls. (4.75 km round trip)  Look how long my legs look in my shadow :)  I'm only 5' tall so it always make me smile to see my body all stretched out.

Tuesday night was Tiffany Falls. (4.25 km round trip) See those stairs, that was just the first 1/4 of the winding staircase up the escarpment that we first came down and then went back up on our way back.

Wednesday night was Felkers' Falls - 6.2km round trip. This waterfall was a bit underwhelming after the majesty of the others this week. The trail was fairly flat and some of it paved so it was a welcome break from the hills and stairs.  There was one big, gradual hill that was a good workout but the rest was not much more than a nice stroll. The views of the city from the top of the escarpment were gorgeous though and the weather was summer-like, almost humid.

I have a Board meeting tonight so it's a 'rest' day from hiking.


  1. What a wonderful way to get in your workouts. And those stairs are definitely a workout!

    I'm so proud of you.

  2. You are so lucky to have such a beautiful place to workout! It's so wonderful to be outside after such a long winter! Seems like you are feeling GOOD!
