Soundtrack for the Greater Toronto Area on the Trans Canada Trail

And so time and the kilometers continue to fly past.  Today we are releasing our soundtrack for the Greater Toronto Area - perhaps one of the most challenging sections we will face, with camping being increasingly unlikely from Uxbridge through Ajax, Pickering, Scarborough, Toronto Harbourfront, Mississauga, Burlington, Hamilton, Brantford, Cambridge, and Waterloo.   As we head out into the GTA today we are looking at 400-500 km of sidewalks rather than country lanes and rural pathways.  Each region brings exciting challenges and new sights and Toronto will be no different.  For the next month we put our #hike4birds to the test - proving that regardless of location, nature can be found everywhere - from the forests of Frontenac and Algonquin to the urban parks of a megacity.   
In the spirit of entering a new region,  today we released our “Hiking Songs for The Great Trail in the Greater Toronto Area” soundtrack, which is a list of songs which have inspired us while we trekked across Canada along The Great Trail in 2019 and so far in 2020! 

One of our traditions, starting in June 2019 while we trekked along The Great Trail was to release a set of songs which have a special meaning for us, which we have heard a lot, have come to associate with our hike along the way, or that someone along the route pointed out to us and it stuck.  Each month or so we will share a new list of these songs with you by uploading a small listing for your enjoyment.
