Jake's Journey - Spirit Wheel Walk Run 2011

Well, it ended up after a dismal sounding weather report that Mother Nature heard my plea and sent  us a beautiful day for the walk.

Here are some pics of the event which took place along the Caledon Trail on May 29, 2011

Caledon Enterprise Newspaper Article on Jake's Journey

The whole gang (except me taking pic)

Grandpa and Grandma Rayment walking too & they are in their 70/80's)
(Even Reggie and Archie the dogs joined in)

(2.5 yr old Jesse walked at least 4km & slept like the dead that night)

(Me at the half way point 5.5km down)
 Check out some of the beautiful scenery

(This house is MASSIVE)

Jesse finally giving up and napping
Yup and that is Auntie Sheila teaching Jesse to be a dog

Pretty much everybody walked at least 6km - the only ones who made it the full 11km were Jeff, Holly, Bruce and Myself (Jesse too but he slept half the way back)
