Texada Trekkers Next Hike

Ther next hike will be on Saturday, 21st November.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am

Last week we had a good number of hikers and a dry day for a change, but there was some fog about at higher elevations than usual. Being optimistic by nature we decided to go for a hike with viewpoints and drove off towards Bobs Lake.  The Mt. Grant Trail starts in thick forest and taking the usual clockwise route from the first junction in the old logging roads it was a while before we reached the first viewpoint where we should have had a view to the north towards Jervis Inlet.  There was just too much fog however and this proved to be the case at almost every other viewpoint on this long winding trail.  When we stopped for lunch we were already past the summit and that viewpoint was relatively clear of fog and all but the very top of Mt. Davies was visible not too far away. 

My photo was taken on a recent hike when we crossed several small creeks which had been swelled by recent rains.
