  1. Congrats Christy! And what an interesting post!

  2. Congrats to Christy! The AQT looks like a lot of fun, like being on a treasure hunt!

    One year we did the waterfall tour of Grey and Bruce counties in southern Ontario. The whole tour is about 150km and you can view 7 waterfalls.

  3. OOH that sounds wonderful, bstudio! i'd love to see that!

    happy touring nicies!
