Having started 2015, I took a look at my photographs from my first real hike in 2006. Prior to that, my family and I went on numerous road trips across the United States. These opportunities to see so many beautiful places led me to eventually yearn to photograph and hike deeper into the natural environment. I knew I wasn’t ready but a friend from university years ago had told me about the Cup and Saucer Trail in Manitoulin Island and I figured it was the perfect opportunity to take my first step in learning how to camp and hike!
The Cup and Saucer Trail provided a perfect and straight forward hike to some very beautiful views along the escarpment. I wanted to return for another visit in 2010 but the weather wasn’t co-operating. Perhaps in a year or so, I’ll get to take in the atmosphere of this beautiful island once again.
