The next hike will be on Saturday, 22nd July.
Because of the Sandcastle events at the Ballpark we will meet at the Community Hall in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
Last week we headed off on the long dusty drive to the start of the Cook Bay Rd. at the foot of Mt. Davies. Hiking first on the road that leads to Bobs Lake we branched off down the Gentian Lake Trail and had a pleasant lunch under the trees at the beaver dam on the west side of the lake.
When we hiked in the Blubber Bay area a couple of weeks ago we visited two active eagles nests and my photo this time is of one of those nests with two youngsters quietly wating for the parents to return with food. In the photo the nest is the mass of twigs at the bottom and one of the young is facing the camera standing on a branch on the left side while the other one is facing away from the camera on the right side. Only wing feathers and part of it's tail is visible as some leafy branches are in the way.
