The next hike will be on Saturday, 27th March.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
I will be away for two weeks and the guide for this hike is Diana Vaughn.
The hike after that will be on Saturday, 3rd April.
We meet at the Legion parking in Van Anda at 10:00am
This will be the annual oyster and clam bake on the beach at Raven Bay and is a one way hike from Van Anda to the bay. Volunteers will be making preparations for this event and all former hikers and guests are welcome to come along as well. Please contact Russ Sparks or David Taylor if you wish to help or would like to know more about what to bring and the transport arrangements.
I hope to be back again in time for the second hike in April which will be Saturday, 10th April. For this we will meet again in Gillies Bay.
Last week we hiked along an old logging road to a large lake that I have been wanting to reach for many years. I think I might call it "Hard to Reach Lake" although other names have been suggested, and I believe the ATV users had a name for it quite a few years ago. It's about the size of Bobs Lake and forested on all sides. There is a small clearing for camping and picnics and someone seems to have started a trail around the south end, but we did not have time to explore it. It's quite easy to reach, now we know how to find the old logging road, and it lies not far to the east of Mt. Pocahontas.
JD.A quiet secluded lake in need of a name.
