While we were visiting with Arch's family in Truro his sister Grace suggested we go for a morning walk in Victoria Park. Located in the heart of Truro this is an amazing spot to discover in an urban setting. It has everything you could ask for in a park:
There is a huge picnic area plus lots of smaller picnic spots tucked away within the park:

|The Witches Cauldron|
The next morning we went back and decided to take the "high road" to the falls. It as quite a climb but really good exercise.
To go back we had to climb up to the route we took in and, for some reason, the up looked a lot more tricky that the down. Also, it was a very frosty morning and there were a lot of slippery spots on the trail and we thought a hand rail would be useful. So we decided to follow the mid-level trail back.
What we did not know was that this trail ended - guess where? At the top of Jacobs Ladder!!!
What to do? what to do? Go back to the top of the slippery hill? Or go down the frosty ladder?
We chose the ladder. Arch went first, carrying Dash, Grace's dog, Then Grace, then me. I thought I would stay a bit behind to take a picture but it was too scary, so sorry, no more down photos.
It was a terrifying trip but, needless to say, we made it safely.
