Last week we had quite nice hiking weather and drove south past Shingle Beach and parked at the gate at the entrance to the Cook Bay private property. It was quite a long hike, mostly uphill along the Cook Bay Cutoff road and then on a side road that took us south to the viewpoint at the end of the short trail we have nicknamed "Machete Mike's Trail" This offers and wonderful view over the island of Lasqueti right below us and beyond the Salish Sea to the distant Vancouver Island mountains.
