We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week the weather was not great with snow forecast for the whole day. We decided to start the hike off from the Ballpark to avoid having problems with driving. There was already snow on the ground at higher elevations and as we headed up School Road it began to snow and in fact the snow never really stopped falling all morning and afternoon. Our destination was the bluff overlooking Gillies Bay, so quite a short distance, but it was 12:00 o'clock by the time we got there. Curiously enough there were very large areas that were quite bare of snow where the trees overhead were evergreens, but on the open bluffs the snow was several inches thick. At the lunch spot we were never able to see more than the houses on Pine Street, the rest of the view hidden from us by the falling snow.
My photo was taken as we climbed the first hill on the logging road to Cap Sheaf.
