Kessler writes: “I was happily slogging away, climbing and descending the muddy mountain and valley path, when, at about hour two of my hike, the trail ended abruptly at the bank of Wallace Brook. No bridge, no walkway. Just a sign informing hikers that one must ford. The river was running fast and high. I reached my hand into the water: icy cold. My options: 1) turn around and retrace my muddy steps for another two hours; 2) figure out a way to actually ford without killing myself in the process. Rather than crossing at the “official” point I searched out a narrower section, closer to where the river spilled into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. My chosen spot was a bit deeper, but I figured I would have a better shot of flinging myself at the other shore if I fell. So, hiking shoes and socks in hand, I took a deep breath and waded in.”
