Come join me and Story Teller Terry Wilson for a continuation of the Fall Pumpkin Pie tour/hike. The star attraction this time around will be a Bloodroot mound, coveted for years by Terry and his nature lover mother, Rosemary. Bloodroot which tends to grow in floodplains and along streams is one of the earliest spring flowers and the white blooms last barely a week. Hopefully our timing will catch the first blooms. As always we will meet Terry at his extraordinary 'shed size' miniature village depicting Meadowvale Village as it looked in pioneer days. At our lunch stop I will be raffling Terry's latest book, "Rosemary's Little Book" released after our last hike/tour. Raffle tickets only $1 each. Terry will remain with us as we hike the Levi Creek Loop which passes by the original location of the village train station.

Public washrooms at 1.5 km, 4 km and nature stop during the last leg of the hike.
