Adventures at Lyn Falls

Nature adventures!

Okay. So me and one of my best pals Justin have a tendency of heading into the forest after a good night with friends. We wake up, chug some water, do our classic "recaps", than decide where we're going to "poke around" that day. Once we get there we usually start openly proclaiming how good of a day we're having and how it's "THE BEST WEEKEND EVER!".

Something about being out in nature and having no goals but well... walking farther in. Exploring! Feels great.

Basically i'll just tell about these adventures with pictures.

One of our first adventures was after a big night partying with friends. We woke up and decided that our destination for the day would be Gatineau Hills. I first found out about Gatineau Hills when I went on a field trip during first year of college. Such a beautiful place.

In this is my roomate Jaden, Beav, and Justin. Notice Justin's pose... you'll see it again hahahah.

Next adventure we went on was to camp fortune north of Ottawa to take mountain biking photos (See last blog update for photos). It was SO awesome! We ended up tailgating for a while here and there and just climbing the mountain watching the bikers rip down like it's their job. It was cool to be opened up to a whole new sports scene.

Here's a photo from on top of the mountain.

There's his pose again. Also in the image is two friends Harry and Beach. Beach is "pretending to chainsaw Harry".

Another popular place we like to go is Mac Johnson which is north of Brockville. Recently we woke up one morning and one of our first conversations was about how were were going to head to the beaver pond. I don't know why we chose that specific place that day but well... I like to think it was fate. When we arrived we found this little sign right beside the beaver pond.

After reading it Justin asks "What's the date today?". Yep, it was October 10th, 2009. That means the pond was made that exact day 93 years before. SO cool.

Here's a photo of the walkway over the beaver dam.

Yeah, cool.

The next day we decided to hit up Lyn Falls. Woo for waterfalls. At one point Justin and my other friend Mike decided they wanted to get to the other side of the waterfall. I thought this was a bad idea (especially with my bag and equipment) so I decided to stay on the safe sidel. Here's a little series of them getting over it. They could have been really hurt hahah.

Getting down to it...

Okay, that's all.

I encourage you all to go take a walk in the woods ASAP. It's getting winter! Go enjoy the weather before it gets too cold!
