If you don't want to climb the bluff there is a trailhead on Reynolds Road also.
When you access the trail system from the below the Niagra Escarpment it parallels the bluff and cuts through a meadow. Stay on the trail, in a lot of spots I saw a pretty good infestation of poison ivy!
My goal was to slow down and take my time. The weather was cool and comfortable I had 3 days to explore some new areas in Door County, no need to rush. I guess butterflies aren't bothered by the poison ivy, I saw quite a few of these little blue beauties.
Keep your eyes open and you'll see more than tiny butterflies. Think there's nothing to see but a rotting log off to the side of the trail? Look again!
Even though Canada Mayflower is small all on its own, slowing down and taking a closer look reveals hidden worlds.
|Peek a boo!|
From the trees to another meadow, and though the summer bloomers haven't made their appearance yet there are still a few things happening in the field and on the edge of it.
In fact, I walked through a section that looked like part of a prior owner's personal orchard.
Since I have so much time here in Door County I spent 2.5 hours wandering through the 2.5 miles of trails. In that time the temperature rose 20 degrees and then it was time for a cup of soup at the Summer Kitchen in Sister Bay before my next adventure began. They serve 5 different kinds of soup every day at a soup bar. I can certainly vouch for their chicken and dumpling!
On my way to my next adventure I saw a new egg in Egg Harbor. His name is Stegg. Isn't he adorable?
No "Eggstravaganza" planned this year it appears. But I had a battle with the mosquitoes ahead of me so I had to focus anyway....
