Men's Walking Group

A little late again - but here are some of my photos from our Goldstream "ups and downs".  A great walk, great weather and good company  - as usual.  -  DeNNis.

Not a lot of info on this map.  Started at the parking lot - down the highway - across the river - then up the mountain side - lots of ups and downs - almost to the trestle above Niagara Falls - then back down to the highway. Interesting to note the parking lot elevation is about 30 meters (98 feet) above sea level - highest recorded elevation on our walk about 149 meters (485 feet).

Nature walk portion of our hike.  

Paparazi causing congestion on bridge across river.  Here we start up the mountain side.

Bunched up at the start - but spreading out as we go.

An indication of the size of some of the old trees.

Fortunately someone brought their trusty pocket knife carve out some helpful openings.

We found a flat area large enough to spread out for a photo-op.

One of a few bridges - trail somewhat wet in places.

Mother Nature can make art out of anything.

Natural trail barrier - "Please stay on path."

Mother Nature gives you that warm, fuzzy (green) feeling.

Ed wanted to explore the old mine shaft -
- but he would have got his feet wet.

Enough  Ups  - starting the final stretch DOWN.

Bridge at  the top of Niagara Falls.

Niagara Falls - Lots of people enjoying the view.
