So figure I start new thread for those interested in trails and hikes in different parts of the Province , set of pictures in this post are from Dalem Lake Provincial Park in Cape Breton County , every yr we travel around to different places hiking different trail systems or exploring different places as has been a thing of ours over last 27 yrs .

Today's hike was nice with light brisk to mild breeze , sunny with few clouds , snow was getting softened up starting to go to melting to where if you walked off trail you fall thru to bottom of snow pack , good sign spring is around the corner . Sounds of different birds were present to give a nice back drop , looking over the lake dark spots starting to emerge thru snow layer another good sign spring is on the way . Just the over all kind of day that is great to be outside and enjoying life away from most technology and getting back toward nature .

Nice clear path going around the lake , few scenic places to sit relax and enjoy the scenery , summer time this place is a great place to hike , walk or fish as lake is stocked as well . Took a slanted picture looking at a huge Pine with hole recently bored thru by a Pileated Woodpecker , that one is for our buddy White Pine Junkie , for everyone else hope you enjoy a new thread and pics to boot .

Nice pics. I love the big old white and red pines. Unfortunately during the era of wooden schooners etc most of the mature pines in N.B and N.S. were harvested for ship building, especially the ships masts.

So off again we go , Went out to a local trail situated between Louisbourg and Main -a`- Deiu in Big Lorraine . Called Goose Berry Cove , park along the highway on a side shute of a parking area , Clear old wood road down to the cove itself , then the trail is a basic cow path along the rugged coastline . Footing must be watched as holes are among the moss , liken and Cranberry plants . Rocks are underfoot everywhere , today was excellent day with a breeze that fill your lungs with mild sea air , smells of the surf and sea weeds .

Listening and watching the ocean crash into the rocks and sea birds along with several flocks of sea ducks and black ducks riding out the waves , the odd seal bobbing up time to time looking at us as we were Aliens lol . We took our time as some of the old beaten path is washed and erased from Fiona , evidence of that is everywhere , huge boulders are thrown in places easy 200 yrds inland , grasses and top soils are balled up and just tossed into the hillsides like a mud cakes . s

The trail is as you go , up over rock outcrops , rocky hills and grasses and simply walk till you feel to turn around , you can walk several kms either way as you plz or as long as the coastline will allow you . We went a good 2 km along the coastline , most times just stopping to take it all in . Everywhere you look after few steps gives total different views . Here is just some of this Sunny day with mild winds and +8 degrees. Felt good just to get away

Beautiful !! Rugged yet serene almost !
Looks similar to some areas here at home and the surrounding communities. You kind of take it for granted when you grow up and live in a spot like that all your life, but a moment of reflection here and there floods the memory gates again with great memories of much simpler times. Thanks for rubbin your boot soles raw and sharing the pics Walter.
