Amazing Day of Hiking

It was our first sunny weekend in weeks or maybe months, and all I could think of was hiking, taking off km in the 75 km hiking Challenge – Cape Breton Highlands National Park and geocaching. I was getting the car packed when I heard a loon call out loud a yodle in front of my property on St. Ann’s Harbour.

I was off to Cheticamp and Cape Breton Highlands National Park to hike Acadien trail with the Les Amis du Plein Air hiking group at 8:30 am. I was a few minutes late but caught up with group later.  An incredible view at the top of this mountain and Cheticamp. I met alot of nice people with this group. Acadien is one of the 3 Peaks in the Cape Breton Highlands 3 Peaks Challenge on July 16.

I also managed to hike that day Le Chemin du Buttereau and le Buttereau, Benjies Lake, MacIntosh Brook, Bog and Jack Pine. It was close to a 20 km hiking day… At Benjies Lake, I came across a big bull moose but he let me passed and on the bog trail I got to hear and see a green frog. I close off the day getting 4 geocaches.. Below are a few pics of my amazing day of hiking.
