Albion falls

What a fun place to hang out for the day! Recently one of my friends let me know that she’s never hiked in Hamilton.

Murphy’s Law

This trip was more of a challenge than I’d really expected. I knew going in that it would be difficult. The portages alone… Continue reading Trail review ~ Scorch Lake Lookout
