April 28 (Sunday) Frontenac Park
We had a warm, sunny spring day for our circuit of the Gibson Lake and Testmine Lake Loops of the Frontenac Park trail system. We saw abandoned mica mines,
old homesteads and lumber mills, many lakes and beaver ponds, and an overview of Moulton Gorge. We encountered a trio of fishermen on their way to a backcountry
lake and a dozen backpackers from Brock University out for five nights; otherwise we saw very few people.
