Jeepers creepers, where’d we find those peepers?

If the coming of the nicer weather makes you yearn to be northward bound, but time constraints make a proper getaway impossible, a bike ride (or walk or run) on the Lynn Valley Trail will give you that ‘up north’ feeling — even though it’s only an hour away from downtown Hamilton, and to the south at that.

Linking Simcoe and Port Dover, this 10 k rail trail runs alongside the Lynn river, through farm land, pine and cedar groves, and bogs. Now, the earliest wildflowers are up: bloodroot and coltsfoot are in bloom, and trout lily soon will be.

    This is fantastic! I am a k-2 pe teacher in Illinois and would love some more information about the company you used to build your outdoor fitness center. This is exactly what I have been trying to get purchased for my school.
    Any information would be greatly appreciated.
