We took a ride on the ATV/Quad along the old rail trail today. It's a beautiful trail. Nicely shaded so not to hot. They are doing seasonal maintenance on the "B" Trail as it is called in our area. It was pretty washboarded at the entry lot up our road, but it was nice further on.

An ATV adventure: Part One
The early morning fog soon burns off in the heat
Indian River Rapids
Steam trains, then modern trains used to rumble across this bridge into Algonquin Park. This bridge is called Indian Crossing. It's about five miles from the Algonquin park boundary. I have to do some research about the age of the line and why it went into the park. We could hardly wrap our heads around the work that went into these old rail lines.
Who is that fellow looking at the river a LONGGG way down.
Many of the old rail lines have been torn up in Canada and the US, and turned into recreational trails. In the winter this trail is very popular with snowmobiles. It was pretty quiet today.
The lovely Indian River. Once upon a time, during the spring freshette, it would have been roaring and filled with logs.
Looking off into the Algonquin Park. That's the river down there, close to where it comes out of Sec Lake.
Rapids on both sides of the bridge.
Tomorrow I'll post the photos of our ride up the logging road past my place.
