We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we drove north along the High Road, then turned right and headed downhill to Pocahontas Bay. Parking at an intersection just up from the bay we started our hike going south on the old logging road called Pocahontas Main. This is once again in use as there has been a fair amount of fresh logging going on about three kilometres south of the bay. Our destination for lunch was at the end of a side road on the very small Taylor Bluff.
My photo this week was taken a couple of hikes ago when we were on our way down from the summit of Surprise Mountain, the highest point on the north end of Texada. The location was an open grassy bluff where we have seen a few plants of this flower in earlier years. This year there were far more plants than I had ever seen here before and many of them had clearly been in bloom not long ago, but only a couple of them had flowers left.
