Thornton Bales Conservation Area

There are not
99 steps...

...there are only
80 steps!

I decided this last week to visit the Thornton Bales Conservation Area (a.k.a. "The 99 Steps") to see if my arthritic legs and wonky heart could still make the climb.  The good news is I went down and back up and only had to stop once, to pet a friendly dog.  Even better news: there are only 80 steps - not 99, as recorded in local folklore.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. I hate to tell you this Barry but they just put in the new steps last year. There were more steps before but I think when I counted them once there were not 99, either a bit more or a bit less.
