2017/06/24 – Finch Hydro / East Highland

Beautiful day to explore some metroscapes, but off to a rough start. Faced off with red-wing blackbirds, no path, got the wrong shoes.

Finally, a path.

Pano L’Amoreaux. Long L’Amoreaux.

Hydro tower nuclear family.

Reached my target: where East Highland Creek is lost north of the Finch Hydro Corridor. I’ll be tracing it south. It’s not a ravine, but I’ll take it.

Paths become beaten (up). The creek continues its saunter through concrete channels.

Confluence of East Highland Creek’s two branches. Very LA-esque.

Concrete continues, with more green as you go. Eventually it’s triple culverts right to the 401.

I returned to Birkdale Ravine. Had to cut my last walkabout along here short because I got heat exhaustion. This time, my battery and my legs forced the walk’s end.
