We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we hiked to the top of Black Mountain. Now that the weather has become quite a bit warmer if was very pleasant to be walking in the shade of the forest for much of the time. There are plans to log some of the forest at the foot of the mountain, but hopefully the forest on the steep slopes where our trail zig-zags towards the summit will remain untouched.
My photo for this week was taken the mid week hike on an old logging road not far from First Lake. I think the extra rains in spring and early summer contributed to the outstanding natural floral displays this year.
