Event Name: Photo Hike - Forks of the Credit Provincial Park


This sponsored event went ahead as planned and was successful.


Ten hikers were in attendance and one person informed of their absence

ahead of time via email. No one was late to show at Downsview's Pick-

up lot.


The grouped hiked at a leisurely pace. Shots and conversations were

the focus of the hike. In all, a distance of 12kms was covered within

approximately 5-6 hours, including lunch (which took place on a slope

overlooking a kettle lake.


Gorgeous day for photography with sparse cloud cover, just enough for

excellent natural landscape photography. The day following the event,

an email was sent out to all participants asking them to submit their

photos. In all, 4 members' photos are posted on Flickr, and are linked

to the event posting.


Everyone joined for a post-hike dinner, beer and ice-cream. One car's

bumper was scratched in the parking lot of the restaurant. The

server's tips did not suffer as a consequence.
