The Monday morning walks of outdoor enthusiasts will continue in the new year, and you’re invited to take part.

Strolling along winter trails is a great way to explore and learn about the landscape of our area.  The exercise is good, the camaraderie is contagious, and the nature sightings are inspirational.  You don’t need to be an expert to participate, just dress for the weather and bring along your interest in the outdoors.

If you’d like to have your e-mail address added to the distribution list, I’d be happy to direct your request to the appropriate contact <ve3nce@rac.ca>.  Trail sites, meeting times, car pool locations, and other details are circulated on Sundays.

Here’s a short selection of photos from a few of our winter adventures.  Additional photos and information are available on previous Millstone postings at ‘The Fun of Winter Hiking’
