I was able to get away for a late lunch from work, and met Ian at the Glenfield parking lot with my bike. Personally, I like the scenery of the west side of the park, but we’d been curious how far east the pathway gets cleared so that’s the way we headed. Unfortunately, cleared path ended at the Higgins Bridge, we couldn’t climb the hill to Diamond Cove (where we hoped we could make it to the newly opened path into south Southland Park), nor could we cross the Higgins Bridge into Douglasdale. Guessing the path clearing stopped where provincial responsibility ends and city responsibility starts, it would sure be nice if they had the same policies.
At one point, we were stopped under some trees and started being pelted with bits of bark. Searching the trees, we found one of several woodpeckers.
