Back to Colony Farm

On most Colony Farm pathways, there were bikers as well as hikers, but under the Mary Hill Bypass, few people ventured unless they fished. This was the reason I hadn’t walked to the Coquitlam River mouth in months. The dirt trail was deserted and there were bear signs posted. Because a hiker on the Millennium Bridge said he ran across a bear, I whistled as I walked the last hundred metres to the junction of the two rivers.

The tide was high which was why I wanted to venture over the last section of the trail. The water was glassy and a few fishers hopefully cast lines into the stream but I didn’t see any fish hauled out of the water’s depths.
