The Humber River is seen from the Kirby Sideroad dead-end, east of Hwy. 27, and south of Nobleton, Ontario. The direction of view is south by south-west towards Toronto International Airport, approximately 20 kilometres away. ( BarrytheBirder Photo)
I got an email yesterday from the Humber River Heritage Trail Association about a couple of upcoming hikes. One of the hikes is on Sat., Feb. 5, on conservation lands just northwest of Kleinburg. It hadn't visited this area in a while and dropped by yesterday afternoon for a glimpse of this wondeful river valley. The hike will cover part of the area you see in the picture above. The river valley here is a tremendous wildlife-viewing area, especially for birds in the summer, but there's lots to see in the winter also, especially with a good guide. Go to http://www.hvhta.ca/ for details about 2011 hikes. Please comment if you wish.
