Waskesiu 2019

August 29, 2019

This year's trip to Waskesiu was littered with rain, so we took advantage of any time that the sun made an appearance, and that means that we had less time on the beach this year. We took advantage of one moment in the evening before heading back to camp to make supper before it started to rain once more.

We decided to hike Treebeard Trail again, because it was our favourite trail last year, and we enjoy the view from the top, as well as the change in flora and fauna because of the forest fire that went through there about 200 years ago. The lower part of the hike is all of the new vegetation that has grown as part of the new forest, and the foliage that you see at the top of the hike is from the old part of the forest, the part that didn't burn in the fire and has continued to grow (as well as die per the cycle of life in the forest).

Back at the campsite, I was able to keep the fire going long enough to warm up some water to make hot chocolate, until the rain started up again and we retired to our OTentik and played games (Spot It is our favourite) until it was time to get ready for bed.

In the morning, we had the opportunity to explore a bit more of Waskesiu before we had to leave the park (there was also one more chance to make hot chocolate), and luckily there was a lot to explore in the Nature Centre as we were trapped by a couple of downpours. That's the thing about camping, you don't have control over the weather, so you've got to be prepared for anything and take advantage of the time that you do have without the rain.
