We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we hiked up the steep way to the top of Mt. Pocahontas. It was sunny and mild, but for most of the day Gillies Bay remained in the marine fog which extended across to Vancouver Island, and both north and south as far as we could see.
My photo this week is a follow up on the the hike we did on the 6th of February. This was the time we hiked up towards Eagle Mountain and Thompson Road and came upon a couple of sink holes close to the old logging road we were following. In both cases there were small creeks flowing down into them and soaking into the ground and I explained that this happens to be a curious feature of areas of limestone outcrops. Since then I have been back to the sink holes with a couple of cavers and at one of them we discovered a small cave. My photo shows a caver from Hornby Island emerging from this cave which seems to be quite a small one.
