Water, Water Everywhere – Beamer Falls

….thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2021/04/26/reflections-2-water-water-everywhere-75/

Last week after we walked through Grimsby Beach Village we got back in the car and drove for a short distance up the Niagara Escarpment to the Beamer Memorial Conservation Area.

The trail from the parking lot led us to a section of the Bruce Trail which brought us to the edge of the escarpment. From there we had a great view of the town of Grimsby, the highway and Lake Ontario.

We continued hiking west to find the Beamer Waterfall. This area was similar to other parts of the Bruce Trail that we’ve been on. After awhile we could hear the falls but we had to literally walk out onto a road and go around the barriers to see it properly. Luckily the area was dry and we didn’t have to worry about slipping.

Another beautiful day for a hike and when we find a waterfall it’s alway a bonus.

….even though spring officially arrived over a month ago Mother Nature had to bless us with one more snowfall

Deep in the woods the snow hung around a little longer
