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
