In the past I've been prone hijack trip threads to post some of my Nova Scotia travels, usually Yellowknife bears the burden of my rides, although he is sometimes on those rides with me. This time it's all about me.......and my wife Shirley who loves to ride along when she's not at work.
First off; the horse I ride: 2001 KLR
and the jockey:
The missus and her ride: A 2008 KLR aquired from JDrocks (see his post here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=644390)
This ride was on our 13th Anniversary, it was a little drizzly in the morning so the ride had to be shortened a little due to lack of sun. We decided to head out from Bridgetown (it's where we live, so we like to start there) and head to Crystal Falls behind the air base in Greenwood. We took the railbed out of Middleton, crossed the Annapolis River
and headed to Bloomington, site of a small Hydro Generating station and waterfall
After that we headed across the East Trobrook Rd on the ridge of the South Mountain (not really a mountain). We stopped at the Charleton farm where the view is outstanding, across the Annapolis Valley is the North Mountain
eventually we came to this...
Crap, we're going to have to turn around......................................not
It's into the woods we go
About 2 miles in we came to the Crystal Falls trail, and a short walk down the hill and we were there
It's a nice spot, but sticking with Nova Scotia tradition some Asshat thinks the whole world shoud know he was there
Ok back to the falls
Something is lurking in the forest
Time to head out. We went straight through the trail and came out above Rocknotch Rd.
We headed off from there for coffee with my buddy Rob and his wife Carolyne, he couldn't come for the ride, his Harley isn't quite equipped for this. After coffee, it was over to the Bay of Fundy for a quick stop at a crowded Beach
Then we took off for
straight out over Bridgetown
towards Annapolis Royal
After this it was home to get the BBQ going and washed down with some homemade IPA.....Talk to ya later
You can find me out in the garage, or the woods.
