This past weekend Dennis and I found ourselves with only one baby and free time! It has been a long time since we've had a chance to do something fun for a whole day together. We had planned to visit the Petroglyphs, but when we arrived at the entrance we found a sign that said, "Park closed for the season, will reopen the second Friday in May." Not to be discouraged, we meandered on up the road to a provincial conservation area near Apsley called "The Gut." This is a beautiful place off the beaten path where a rushing river has cut a gorge through the rock. There is a beautiful waterfall there. We saw a garter snake on the path and quickly got a picture.
After visiting the gorge we went on up to Bancroft to pick up the older girls from Grampa and Gramma's. On the way home from there we saw a moose chewing on a sapling right beside the road! He didn't act too interested that he had attracted several cars and picture takers.
