The Ganaraska Hiking Club Orillia Section has been hiking throughout this season of COVID-19 - first alone, then in pairs, then in groups of five, and now in groups of 10.

Recently, with the onset of soaring temperatures and high humidity, the group switched to early morning, shorter hikes to accommodate the heat.  

What has been fun was getting to see the season unfold in more detail than usual as not so many competing activities means more hiking. Now the wildflowers are waist high.
