Deck cleaning


Yesterday seemed like a good day to clean the deck


with the high pressure washer

and bleach that needed to be on there for a while 
3 parts water 1 part bleach
when it rained in that time I went out to brush the bleach in


the back siding was cleaned in between



finish the front


looks way different

Second cut Hay


Because of the weather there is a big crop


silos are full already but we could make hay
172 bales


Rien and Marc opened up the wall more 
it is a lot easier to drive into the middle part now


so we could even have more hay with third cut

Bruce trail Concession street Parking Lot to Tiffany Falls


Start at Concession street, a very nice parking lot 
free parking and close to the trail


the start was beside Arkledun av with a view over Hamilton


here we are between Clairmont access and James Mountain rd
between roads in a piece of green but with car smells and sounds


still very pretty


saw this person sleeping and another man was yelling very loud
to himself, we waited until he left to proceed our route


James street stairs

we just crossed them underneath


next set of stair we only had to walk down a piece
Dundurn Stairs
lots of people went up and down for exercise 
 

It was much harder to get to waterfalls here
they were mot as accessible 
 

we hiked quite a bit along the Chedoke Radial Trail
a very popular biking / hiking trail


up on top a pretty waterfall
mountview waterfall


indeed there was a view


we also found black raspberries 


ripe for the picking


Iroquoia Heights


Crossing of the 403
 

back in the bush, here we didn't hear traffic anymore



nice view


back to stairs, these were sometimes quite deep


and after this we had to go all the way up again


Tiffany Falls


very pretty,
 a lot less water then the last time we were her
