What a great fall day for a bike ride from Confluence to Rockwood. The temperatures was in the low 60's, a bit chilly, but peaks of sun were at our backs in and out all day. We rode through the recently renovated and reopened Pinkerton Tunnel, originally built in 1911.
We rode our bikes into the business district and discovered the Rockwood Mill Shoppes and Opera house. Although they were closed for the season we plan to visit again in the spring to browse the antiques and handmade items, and chow down on their pizza.
Every once in a while a whistle from a train chugging by across the ways of the Casselman River could be heard. And strangely, a colorful Quail follow me for a time up the path; perhaps a released pheasant.
Once in Rockwood we were greeted by a unique mural painted by artist Diane Adams. What a beautiful community asset! I can't think of a better way to inspire people and to cultivate change!
Thanks for visiting!
