Day 1 – reddened things
Location: Caledon – West Montrose – Elora – Kitchener/Waterloo – Hamilton
This week was all about exploring South of us, and the hunt for the top 20 Ontario geocaches brought us to some unique locations. Our first stop was the very jarring sight of the red desert that is the Cheltenham Badlands.
Next we checked out the last remaining active covered bridge in Ontario at West Montrose and also found our favourite cache find of the week.
We headed over to the watery town of Elora afterwords hoping for a rival to last weeks Mississippi Falls. We found a pretty town but alas there weren’t any interesting waterfalls.
Over in Kitchener we found an incredibly fun real life ‘Escape the Room’ game where the owner handcuffed us to a wall and left us to fend for ourselves.
And finally to a friends house in Hamilton for the night.
Day 2 – I want waterfalls dammit!
Location: Hamilton – Dundas – Pelham – St Catharines – Niagara Falls
Day 2 started with us attempting to visit the well known beautiful Tews Falls and Webster Falls that are up the side of a mountain in Dundas…but oddly both were closed off. Instead we headed off for St Catharines and stopped to visit the ‘sunken ship’ along the way.
Not to be defeated, we headed off for a 2 hour trek into the woods in Pelham to play up close in their waterfall gorge.
And then finally of course to the powerhouse that is Niagara Falls.
Day 3 – it’s tourist time
Location: Niagara Falls – Niagara on the Lake
And of course a day of fooling around in Niagara Falls. Weird sites, long bike rides, butterflies, flowery everything, money spent, lost in the woods, geocaches found, etc.
Day 4 – lets get home
Location: Niagara Falls – London – Guelph – GTA
And finally, some wild zig-zagging taking in what remaining cities we could visit on the way back, and home!
