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!)

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.
