This group from St. David’s and St. Mark’s, Port Hastings and Port Hawkesbury had a great time hiking the Skyline Trail, Cape Breton Highlands National Park on June 5th, 2017. Unfortunately the fog never did clear while we were out on the platforms. But we took this opportunity to offer prayers of thanks for the blessing this excursion had been for all involved.
