Today (well as it is after midnight technically it was yesterday) Edward and I hiked Cape Split in Scott’s Bay, Nova Scotia. It is 8 km each way out and back which turns out to be a 4-5 hour hike. It took us 4 hours and roughly 15 minutes. It was a beautiful but exhausting walk/hike. Neither of us had ever done it before. We love walking and hiking but have only every really done easy ones. This is classified by the provincial park system as a moderate hike. Now I know why. Wow was it ever long!
We started out at a place called The Lookoff which was on the road to Cape Split. I have taken pictures there before but not for a long time. You can see the whole Annapolis Valley from The Lookoff.
Next we drove on to Cape Split, we had some sandwiches and pop and chips that we brought with us as a picnic lunch in the car before we set out. There was no picnic tables out yet or we would have sat outside. We started out walk at 2:45 PM.
The trail went through a very woodsy area which was nice and cool and blocked out most of the sun. The weather wasn’t all that hot anyways. Only about 13°C and sunny which was perfect weather for a hike. We made sure to bring along sweaters with us and I had a windbreaker/raincoat as well.
