In a quest to enjoy the stunning autumn colours as much as I can, I dragged Robin on another hike as we explored the Balls Falls conservation area. The area is fairly small but there’s lots to explore including two waterfalls, the remnants of an old woolen mill from the 1800s, and more! As we’ve found with many […]
