Winter Snow Shoeing
This past weekend we hit the East Coast Trail,leaving from Bay Bulls. It was
cold but sunny and the scenery spectacular.
The starting point for us was Gun Ridge once thought to be a British battery. More than likely the name reflects the location as a favourite hunting spot in the days when muskets were the norm. This settlement only sustained five dwellings and the occupants worked the land or harveted wood. This area was abandoned as a community in the 1950s and most people moved much closer to Bay Bulls itself.
We didn't make it all the way to the Spout but that is another story.
