 Sandy and I have hiked most of Killarney Provincial Park’s hiking trails. Although we’ve hiked bits of the La Cloche Silhouette Trail we’ve not hiked it in its entirety probably because we’re not hard core backpackers, and also because we landed up in the park at the wrong time in our lives. Make no mistake the La Cloche Silhouette Trail is arduous, and scarcely a person finished this hike without a few bumps and scratches, so if you’re to challenge this trail do so when your young and adventurous. But, if the La Cloche Silhouette Trail is not your cup of tea, don’t be put off because there are many trails all of which have their own challenge, and vistas enough to provide artists with a lifetime of sketching and painting.

Well, that's it for now. I could go on, but it's time for you to get in the car and head up to Killarney Provincial Park to experience for yourself it's incredible landscape, and abundant nature. We'll meet up again when I've had a bit of a break. It's time to head out to the marsh to witness the waterfowl migration, and perhaps make a few sketches. Until then like the song, once the theme song for Roy Rogers and Dale Evans films (tells you just how old that I am), I'll wish "Happy Trails to you, until we meet again.............
