Kejimkujik National Park - April 1, 2012

Today we visited Kejimkujik National Park. Here are some of the pictures. Above is the trail into the forest area, and a dramatic scene of rushing water. There was still snow on the ground.
How many of you have heard of the Hemlock tree? There is a quite a large forest of Hemlock trees in the Kejimkujik National Park. In the upper left had corner you can see me holding a piece of the Hemlock. The boardwalk we were walking on is made of Hemlock. It tends to be resistant to rot and insects. The boardwalk is not built for the convenience of hikers but to protect the Hemlock tree roots from further erosion.
