Mickey Hill Pocket Wilderness Trail

The Mickey Hill Pocket Wilderness Trail was a new trail for us to explore. This is a map of the trail. One of Mikes friends visited this place and he suggested we should go. I had not even heard of the place. We took the kids up for a day trip and to find the geocache located there. It was a beauftiful spot for photography hiking and picnics.

This is right beside the picnic area, next time I would bring peanuts for the squirrels/chimpunks, they seemed tame.

The brook/river is so pretty there, I would have loved to have tried fishing there.

Mike took this photo of this tree mushroom? Waiting on a reply after some research to see if I can identify it, I thought it was pretty with the rain on it.

The geocache! This one was hard to find..this picture will not help you lol.

We were pretty sure we had a coyote following us..or a dog maybe… However we did find fresh poop and it had rabbit fur in it so..yuck and a tad scary!

Location is in Annapolis, Nova Scotia.

Sunflowers and Corn Maze at Noggins Farm in NS

A few summers ago me and Mike headed to the valley to go to Noggins Farm and corn maze. I had heard about it for a while but never went.  What they do is take a huge corn field and cut a large maze in it.

This is an areal view of the maze from http://nogginsfarm.ca

As you can see the maze is HUGE!!

This was a view from the flower and herb garden at Noggins. You are able to pick your own apples at certain times, herbs and some flowers.

These sunflower were so pretty, fluffy almost.

Bees were in abundance at the farm.

Once in the maze it was hot and hard! Once we got about halfway through and we had to pee lol so we didn’t get too far. Overall I would love to go again with the kids and work our way through the maze. I love the valley in general, driving by the huge garden and corn fields and apple orchards.
