We have lived in this Bayfield area for nearly nineteen years now and I have walked most of the trails at one time or another. However, there is a trail not too far from us that although I had been aware of it for years I just kept forgetting it was there. A local blog reader left a comment a few months ago wondering if I had ever hiked the trail just west of Varna Ontario. Well, that jogged my memory and I had kept that thought on my radar screen until this morning when Pheebs and I, after our country road morning walk headed the short distance over to Varna Ontario.

There has been a number of bear sightings in our region this past summer so of course that is always on my mind whenever we are out and about on these forest trails. Bears were never a concern around here until these past few years so I don't know if it's one bear making multiple appearances or a whole herd of bears hiding out in the woods. I sometimes wonder if there are any bears at all. Might be just squirrels dressed up in bear suits scaring people.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A drunk guy goes horseback riding. It starts out slow, but then it starts to gallop. The guy is enjoying himself. All of a sudden he slips off and his foot gets caught in the reins. The horse doesn't stop and the drunk is still being dragged upside down. He doesn't know what to do. Finally, the Wal-Mart manager comes and unplugs it.

A six-year-old comes crying to his Mother because his little sister pulled his hair.
"Don't be angry," the Mother says, "Your little sister doesn't realize that pulling hair hurts." A short while later, there's more crying, and the Mother goes to investigate.
This time the sister is bawling and her brother says..."Now she knows."
