The next hike will be on Saturday the 9th July.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we had quite decent weather for hiking and headed up to the high ground. This year there seems to be an extra abundance of wild white daisies which have spread in recent years much more away from the highway verges than before. One area in particular is the Bell Road hill where the view on both side covers vast areas of white and purple, both daisy and foxglove in full bloom. Parking on the gasline just south of Bobs Lake we hiked south along the right of way to the point where it runs next to the Anderson Bay Rd. There we left the pipeline walking instead on the road until we reached the short side road that took us into that small lake shore picnic spot used sometimes by those in search of tasty fresh trout.
My photo this week shows the small area of open water at the northern end of the Cap Sheaf wetland. This was our destination on a recent hike that started from Gillies Bay Ballpark.
At the northern end of Cap Sheaf Lake the steep mossy cliff provides a nice spot to sit down and eat lunch.
