Uisge Ban Falls-November 12,2017

On Sunday, November 12,2017 approximately 20+ of our CBIH Group participated in a fabulous Fall Walk into Uisge Ban Falls. Due to Flooding and storms there has been changes to this favorite trail and this meant that our group was unable to complete the River Trail because there are bridges out and this section of the trail is not accessible. Despite this we still enjoyed the hike into the falls and upon return to the Trail Head we continued our walk along the road that leads in/out of  the Park. The weather was cooperative and a the scenery was breathtaking.

* Please note that our Honorary CBIH Member; Flat Alex  joined us again on his very first venture into Uisge Ban Falls. Flat Alex is joining us from a Grade 2 Class in Alberta and is learning about Nova Scotia. What better way than to join our group  as we explore our beautiful Island.
