Exploring the world that we cannot see with our own eyes has been a common thread in Don’s career as a professional photographer.

Where can you get to see a train museum, waterfront and architecture spanning different decades in one outing? On the Saturday July 16 outing led by Bill Smith.

Meet up Location: In the York St. Concourse by the future Uncle Testsu Cheese Cake location in Toronto Union Station, 10:45 am. From there we move west along Bremner Boulevard to the Toronto Train Museum, from there we double back to York St. and go south to Queen’s Quay and make are way west towards Bathurst. We will break for lunch at the Amsterdam Ale House if seating is available failing that we’ll find another establishment.

After lunch we continue west to Bathurst head north to Bremner/Fort York Boulevard and head east to Dan Leckie Way, then we head north to the pedestrian bridge crossing the train tracks to Front St. From there we head east to draper St. and then head north to Wellington on this hidden gem. We head west to and then north on Portland to King St. We have plenty of establishments to stop at for an early dinner depending on our progress. Afterwards we can continue shooting if we want or head back to Union Station.

What do you need?

A decent pair of comfortable shoes, there will be a lot of walking involved and we could easily cover 8+km over the course of the day.

Sunscreen, if it’s sunny this is a wise thing to bring with you.

Bring your camera with normal to wide lenses. leave the 200mm telephotos behind. This is a “travel light” outing.

A Presto card or $3.25 cash fare for the TTC if you need to bail due to other commitments over the course of the walk. Streetcars are equipped with Presto Card readers (tap once), the Spadina Street car loops to Union Station and the 504 and 514 King street cars will take you downtown.

The seasons have changed and this year's Fall colours outing we're headed back to Mono Cliffs Provincial Park northeast of Orangeville along the Bruce Trail.

We have a bit of everything for those who have never been, cliffs, great views, lakes, and a good hike on varied terrain. Portions of the trail while not difficult, do require your attention. For those with mobility issues, this won't be your outing.

The game plan
Arrive at Mono Cliffs Provincial Park at the 2nd Line Road East Entrance at 9:30 AM, you park on the side of the road. The morning portion of the hike we will cover roughly 5.8 km and break at Mono Cliffs Inn for lunch. The afternoon portion of the hike is about 3km and we loop back to our cars.

How to get there: Highway 410 to Highway 10, go north past Orangeville to Dufferin (Mono Centre) Road #8, turn east and follow that to Mono Centre. From there take 2nd Line East north to the end and find parking on the side of the road. Travel time from Oakville by car will be just over an hour.

What to Take With You:

This is a hike, so bare minimum is running shoes however hiking boots or shoes are highly recommended. We will be covering about 8 km in total so it's wise to travel with a camera backpack if you have one or travel light with a shoulder bag. I would also bring a polarizing filter to make the colours pop.

There is a sign up sheet at the October 3rd Meeting as we need to make a reservation at Mono Cliffs Inn so we can space for us as it is one of their busy seasons.
