Guru Nanak Walk

3 October 2015

img_2563On a cool autumn morning with brisk winds blowing, 42 adventurers gathered at Toronto’s Edwards Gardens to begin this year’s Guru Nanak Walk. Following the ardas, the journey began down Wilket Creek through parks and trails which eventually lead into the Don River and Valley. From there, some of the more ambitious participants charged on forward, taking a turn off the intended route and venturing along the scenic Taylor Creek to Scarborough before having to be brought back on track. Meanwhile, those with more savvy orienteering skills managed to make it down to the Don Valley Brick Works and continued up to Moore Park and the Vale of Avoca before returning for lunch. Sholay and rice along with sandwiches and tea were much enjoyed before making the final trek down the valley to Riverdale Farm. Despite the cold and the charm of the valley’s tributaries that lead many astray, the participants enjoyed each other’s company amidst the autumn backdrop and gained an appreciation for Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s far-reaching travels on which he spread his teachings of peace and compassion.
