|Bambi is one of my best hiking partners.|
I responded to a Facebook friend looking to do an evening snowshoe along the Bluff in Sussex Corner. I had been looking for an excuse to get out of the house and enjoy some wilderness so I responded and before you knew it we had 4 others joining us.
It was 8:30pm on a Sunday evening and four varied individuals headed off into the darkness to search their way to a familiar spot to all. If you spend any time in this part of New Brunswick you likely have been to the Bluff. If not you have at least gazed up at it from the Dutch Valley Road thinking "I bet there is a nice view from up there." All those hiking have been around these parts for a good portion of our life and all had been to the Bluff through the summer months during the day time but only a some of us have ventured there in the middle of the night during the winter. I love the Bluff at any time of year and any time of day.

|Luke and Kody were a team.|
It was a great night and one that has prompted me to investigate what might be done to create a linear park here to protect this sensitive ecosystem.
|The view from the saddle towards the Village is my favorite spot.|
