Jones Falls and Inglis Falls – Valentine’s Day Adventure

Valentine’s Day has come and gone for another year. And this year, that special day coincided with a day off for me which added to being a bonus all around.

Oh, before we continue on here, this isn’t a post on Valentine’s Day. Although at some point we could do one – maybe.

Having said that though, we did spend our Valentine’s Day on the road to Owen Sound in Grey County and specifically Jones Falls and Inglis Falls.

Since the beginning of January, we haven’t been out, perhaps as much as either Lynn or I might have liked. There hasn’t been any particular reason as to why other than simply life and other stuff seemed to pop up from time to time.

Leaving the “old homestead” about 8:30am, we stopped at a local coffee shop in a village south of us, picking up coffee and bagel breakfast sandwiches, before continuing west towards Owen Sound.

We arrived at Jones Falls around 11:00am and were blessed with temperatures that had risen from a minus 21 degrees C(when we had left home), to now a balmy minus 12 degrees C.

Now, where did I put my shorts and tee-shirt?

Unfortunately, in the rush to get out there door of the “old homestead”, Lynn forget the one camera lens she wanted to use in order to capture the essence and fury of the waterfalls. Undaunted, she managed to capture enough pictures with other lenses which give a good sense of the wintery environment.

After leaving Jones Falls we drove over to Inglis Falls located just south of the city.

I also put together a 2 or 3-minute video clip of our day. Not my best video work, but it does the trick!

Seeing as it was late afternoon and the temperature was starting to drop down again, we left Inglis Falls and headed back into Owen Sound for a late lunch/early dinner, before starting the trek home.

Our day ended up being what for us was the perfect Valentine’s Day. Outdoors on an adventure with the one you love, doesn’t get any better in our minds.

We hope your Valentine’s Day was special, regardless of how you celebrated it.

If you get the opportunity, head on out to the Owen Sound and Grey County areas. There is plenty to do and take in for the entire family. Great places to hike; tons of things to see and visit; fabulous restaurants to fill your tummy; plus wonderful and quaint inns, hotels or B&B’s if you feel like making a weekend out of it.

Here are a couple of links to help in the planning. Now, get to it.
