The next hike will be on Saturday, 19th July.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we drove quite a long way south along Bell Road, past Bobs Lake and then parked at the first gas pipeline crossing on the Anderson Bay Road. The hike route was south along the pipeline then on various logging roads, past the turning into Angel Lake, then onto a side road that eventually took us to the fairly long beaver dam at the big pond with a great view of Twin Peaks. It was a warm and humid day that seemed to bring out a lot more deer flies than usual, but sitting under the trees at the edge of the pond there was a little breeze and the bugs were much less of a problem than they might have been.
My photo this week is one I took recently when we hiked the lovely new Marble Bay trail along the north shoreline of Sturt (Marble) Bay. The Boat Club marina is just outside the left side of the photo and the floats you can see are all private ones.
