We are lucky to have so many open spaces in this city and a good variety of trails. The west end of Massey Drive opens to Ginter's Meadow, as the locals know it, named after Ben Ginter ("Uncle Ben" who was a road builder and also owned the Pacific Western Brewery in Prince George in 1960.)
Ben Ginters house once stood on the brow of the hill in a birch grove. The foundation is still evident, along with the driveway curving up easily among the trees.
This is an off lease area and my chocolate lab Marlie figures thats a good thing. My other (small dog syndrome) Fox Terrier agrees.
We often explore the trails that offshoot the meadow. There's lots of them that snake their way up the hill to University way. Once in the Forest we rarely meet anyone. Good exercise, and quiet reflection.
