Night Hike: Mar 26, in West Hamilton
In a hiker’s world, any excuse for a walk is good and you’re my excuse on Thurs. Mar. 26. Once again, Jarah West and Beatrice Ekwa Ekoko have convinced me to lead a 1.5 – 2 hr neighbourhood walk. (It didn’t take much convincing.)
So it is that we will be gathering between 6:30 and 7:00 on that particular evening in the parking lot in front of Christ the King Church on King St. W. beside Hwy. 403. At 7:00 sharp we will head out into the “wilds” of Hamilton’s west end. No stroll up the garden path, this one. March is the month of mud and certainly we’ll encounter some of that as we hike through Kay Drage Park, Princess Point, Churchill Park, and the wooded south shore trails of Cootes Paradise. Wear your hiking boots. Before we start out on the walk, I promise to sing to you a song about “mud, mud, glorious mud”.
For those interested in a bit of socializing, at the end of the walk there’ll be a pub stop at which I’ll sing you yet another song, this one about a man and a pig sharing a gutter.
I look forward to seeing you and singing my little heart out.
Cheers, Richard Reble
