We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
The hike will end back at Gillies Bay a little earlier than usual to give hikers a chance to take in a presentation at the Community Hall at 2:15pm. Details of the meeting are in the attached poster.
Last week we drove south towards Shingle Beach then turned off at the top of the last hill to get onto the new logging road system0 that eventually joins the lower part of the Cook Bay Rd. We parked not far from the junction and headed up the road going north towards Mt. Davies. The plan was to explore for a new viewpoint that is situated very close to a side road at a point very much higher than our parking place. We did reach the spot we had hoped to reach, but there was cloud cover at that elevation so it will be another day on another visit before we can fully enjoy the new viewpoint. For most of the hike we were walking on bare roads, but much of the side road still had a fair bit of snow on it as you can see from my photo which was taken at the highest point.
