We meet at the Canadian Legion in Van Anda at 10:00am.
Last week we were faced with a dull day that looked unlikely to change much for quite some time. It made sense to stay low down so we headed up to Bell Road taking the left fork onto the Hydro East Rd at Bell Farm. The high ground was fog-bound and very damp, but when we reached the parking area at Hydro East we were well below the fog and the rain was quite light. We started off by walking north on the old logging road, but someone was camping in the middle of the road, perhaps hunters or maybe not, so we decided to head south instead. We ended up doing a circular hike that took us under the Hydro lines higher up the right of way, and the rain was never much of a problem. Mushrooms were found here and there, but after the recent rains I would have expected more than we actually saw.
