Swimming upstream

After being briefly distracted by some salmon trying to swim upstream, we decided to stray from the beaten track today to follow the river and look for more.

We found some more offroad trails in the Morningside / Col. Danforth park system, and right around where the trail forded the river, we found a couple who'd just managed to catch one of the unlucky salmon on their trek north.

After the park we headed to Pickering via the usual route, then north to Finch and over to the Algoma Forest, which I learned afterwards is a bike-free zone. Headed for home in the grey, intermittent drizzle, finishing at about 45km for the day.
