The next hike will be on 17th November.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we headed off from the Ballpark on a dry but somewhat cloudy day on the long drive to Five-way Junction on the road to Anderson Bay. Our plan was to repeat a hike we did with an extra large group of hiker in the summer on which we unfortunately got lost and missed having lunch on a small bluff with a great view. This time we knew the flagging had been checked and we were able to enjoy having lunch on the viewpoint this time. It's true the view would have been clearer in the summer, there was lots of rain cloud over the mountains on Vancouver Island and for a while the fog was very thick not far below where we were sitting. It did clear for a few minutes and I think my photo did capture the way things can look on a mild foggy day in November.
Lasqueti Island could just be seen through the drifting November fog from a viewpoint high above Cook Bay.
