We have been meaning to hike to the sand dunes for awhile but things kept coming up. Today though the stars were aligned as we made it and had a wonderful time.
Our walk today started out by parking at the Schooner Bridge parking lot. We crossed the road to the trail entrance beside the paramedics. From there we walked through wooded areas, the old race track, fields and more woods until we emerged at the top of the dunes. Sorry I can't give proper directions as we just walked towards the direction we thought they were in and eventually found them.
I saw my first Indian Pipes for the year. Apparently these are now called Ghost Pipes.
This picture below is at one end of the old Wasaga Race track as we headed back onto the trail.
When we arrived at the dunes I was quite surprised as they were much bigger then I had imagined and I expected them to be like a bowl shape. It was quite steep and a river awaited them at the bottom.
There was turn waiting so as to not roll over someone as bodies rolled down the hills. There was helping the youngest climb, easpecially in steep areas so she didn't loose her footing and fall. There were races to who could roll the farthest and the fastest.
See all the tracks over the hill... That's where the above picture was taken and where most of the climbing and rolling took place.
There was attempts to catch minnows with bare hands and everyone wished they brought their bathing suits!
While walking to that end there was attempts at mountain climbing.
