Confederation Trail – Uigg – Signs of Man

Kilometer 18

Kilometer 18

The Confederation Trail has markings every kilometre, the occasional bench or picnic table, and purple (!) gates where it crosses major roads (to keep out motorized vehicles.)

There are signs of agricultural life everywhere.

It used to be common for farmers and others to dump derelict vehicles at the back of their properties. This faded red truck has never been retrieved, though there was an extensive program to recycle vehicles during the last quarter of the last century (gee it seems weird saying that!)

Red Truck.

You don’t want to know what other common practice was evident in the pile on the left of this picture…at Kilometre 17.

These apples are not a sign of agricultural life, so much as a sign of how many apples the train crews must have eaten, throwing the cores out the windows. There are wild apple trees everywhere along all parts of the Confederation Trail.

Wild apple trees abound beside the trail.

  1. Great images! I almost missed the red truck. Maybe that’s why it wasn’t retrieved. 😉

      A nice splash of colour in a rapidly graying season. Actually you don’t notice the apples much until late in the season. Then again, because of the mosquitoes, I rarely walk the rail trails until the fall.
