We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we hiked up onto the bluffs above Kirk Lake and enjoyed the views to the west towards Vancouver Island. As usual with this particular hike we did get lost in the forest a couple of times, but added some more flagging to sections of the trail where we had got lost before!
The photo this week is of a very young deer fawn hiding from predators while it's mother is off somewhere not far away. The youngster was keeping perfectly still with head down and eyes open and had not been abandonded by the mother who was no doubt busy feeding on vegetation with a higher than usual moisture content this summer.
Thanks Jim for this lovely photo.
