Off we went to Park Hill Trails over by Canoe, B.C.
I had been on the Northern Loop once before with my friend Anita, so feeling confident I led the way.
Even if you've been on a trail before, that doesn't mean it's going to seem as familiar as you hope it will feel.
On this time up the trail there were two sets of trees laying across the path. We had to go under or climb over them. We both went over the first set of trees.

Thanks to Arta, we got to rest on a wooden bench she spotted off the trail. We had a beautiful view of the Anglemont community on the shore opposite us. The Shuswap waters didn't have the glassy look of the early morning. Quiet ripples on the lake were from boats long gone by.
We stopped long enough to see a couple of birds swooping down close to the water looking for an afternoon snack, and a canoe and a paddle boat board passed through our view.
The beach on this side of the lake is just visible and it looks so inviting, but if I'm going to take a dip it's going to be in Annis Bay.
