A photo journal of what I had come cross during one of my early morning walks.
It took place on a sunny cool winter morning through the Cedar Bog Trail & Chickadee Trail, located in Birds Hill MB. Each trail takes approx. 1 hour to complete.
Idea for Families / Kids – during the spring / summer, pack a Microscope in your backpack and scoop up a couple drops of bog water. Have a look at the amazing little creatures & plant life under the microscope!
While you were sleeping…I was already out exploring!
Absolutely Amazing to have these tunnels
all to myself!
Standing alone, in and around the tunnels, soaking in the sights & sounds while feeling the history of it all. I was getting lost in the moment of the environment without any distractions, it was really an amazing feeling that I don’t know how to explain.
At one point, I stood in the middle of a tunnel and waited for a few seconds, hoping my eyes would adjust to the darkness, listening to the echoes of the dripping water. A little eery, but very cool! (I’m glad no one said “hello”…..I would have soiled my shorts) Also, how many people actually get to stand in the tunnels alone, and just listen?
Once you’re past the tunnels, there are a couple trails to walk. The one I took was approx. 3 km (round trip) of a fairly flat and straight forward path.

Walking through one of the many trails offered at the Golden Ears Provincial Park,
I was surrounded by the Brilliant Reds & Lushes Greens.
Golden Ears – Edge Peak and Blanchard Peak was originally called The Golden Eyries, however the name was corrupted to “Golden Ears”, which had stuck and the name became official in the 1930’s / 40’s.
