The next hike will be on Saturday, 27th August.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week with a very small number of hikers for a change we drove in just one vehicle up to the High Road and parked where the Hydro line heads up from the road to the top of Pocahontas Mountain. Walking north quite a distance we eventually turned off on the left onto the remains of a logging road that took us to the lovely picnic spot at the south end of Cap Sheaf Lake. No sign of the turtles out of the water as usual, but lots of evidence that the females had been busy egg-laying.
My photo this time is one I took on the recent mid-week day long outing to the south end of Texada, Anderson Bay, Point Upwood and Mt. Dick. This was my first visit to this peak which is much lower than Mt. Shepherd and has very different views west and north towards Lasqueti Island and Cook Bay. The hike through the old growth forest was very pleasant, the trail in good shape and now we know where it starts from perhaps one we will revisit another time.

some of the smaller island in the Sabine Channel.
