Our mountain is really just an escarpment, but it divides us into those who live on the mountain and those who live below the mountain. I live and work below the mountain but today I had to head on up there for business. I decided to seek out a rail-trail that I had heard of but never used. I found it.
It's made for a rail-line (which is now obviously gone) so that makes the climb very subtle. It's almost like one of those magnetic hills - you know, where you're going in the opposite direction that you think you should. That's how easy a climb this was.
It basically goes east-west, but at the top of the mountain you can, apparently, take it dozens of miles south to an adjoining community. A trip I will make one day soon.
|This is at the beginning of the climb. It must have looked like a tunnel of colour a couple of weeks ago.|
|Scenic rest stop.|
|I pass this brick yard every day from down below. I've never seen it from this perspective.|
|This is quite a way's along and no longer on the rail-trail. I live a couple miles to the right and down. That's Lake Ontario in the distance.|
