7:58am I think today would be a good day to go to Niagara Glen for a walk.
4:39pm Heading to Niagara Glen now.
5:00pm Arrived at Niagara Glen. Plotting out my course. I think I will walk to the cairn at the southern terminus of the Bruce Trail and back. Let’s find out how far that is. I brought my backpack with me with a five pound weight in it and a water bottle.
6:40pm Halfway point – reached the stone cairn. Distance covered – 6.8km, if I’m reading the MapMyHike app correctly. Now I’m going to do something I don’t like to do – backtrack, instead of making a loop.
8:27pm Done my hike. Duration 3h14. Distance 12.64km. Let’s head home.
The backpack didn’t bother me. The dumbbell weight didn’t bother me. There was no point at which I felt dragged down by the weight.
Next time – no stopping for pictures or text messaging!
