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.
