FOMB kicks off their Canada 150 Celebrations
Who could have asked for a better day? The snow the previous day created the perfect conditions for our trek to the south shore of Misery Bay to see the ice formations. Ten intrepid and determined skiers and snow-shoers trekked down the inland alvar trail to the south shore last Saturday afternoon. Conditions were perfect for an afternoon outside, mild, no wind, with just the right amount of freshly fallen snow.
Although not clear from these photos, in places the ice had a bluish colour to it.
The Inland alvar trail is quite a challenge on skis due to its narrow, twisty nature, with drop-offs down previous shorelines. If you are considering wilderness ski-ing in Misery Bay use the red trail to the beach.
Looks like it was a GREAT Day at Misery Bay and as we like to say Misery Loves Comapny!

We received this note from Lucy Leung, leader of the TBTC group:
“The Toronto Bruce Trail Club of 56 hikers ranging from ages 20 to 70+ had an amazing weekend on Manitoulin Island and a memorable Saturday morning at Misery Bay. Thank you again for spending time with us and sharing your wealth of knowledge about Misery Bay. It is clear from the happy faces in the enclosed group photo that we all had an awesome time.
Toronto Bruce Trail Club is the largest of the nine member clubs of the Bruce Trail Conservancy, a charitable organization committed to establishing a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the bruce trail. [brucetrail.org] Our 3,000+ members enjoy the benefits of a full range of hiking, conservation and educational activities. You can read more about TBTC in the following link [www.torontobrucetrailclub.org]
Thanks again Gaynor and I look forward to another opportunity to visit Misery Bay again.”
