Next Hike

The next hike will be on Saturday 24th November.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am

Last week we were again faced with a foggy situation although this time the fog was not as low down on the sea as it so often is.  Sometimes this means the fog is more like low cloud and might be covering the entire island perhaps even extending above our highest peaks.  Anyhow, it seemed worth heading for the high ground and we set off in search of the sunshine, driving south towards Bobs Lake.  We were in luck and soon found ourselves near Mt. Davies in bright sunshine and  soon parked at the Gentian Lake trailhead.  This day the target was Mt.Flicker and the route took us along roads, the gas-line the forest and eventually up the very steep trail to reach our lunch spot at the very top.  It was so warm in the sun no one was in any hurry to move on and I was happy to capture another view of our fall fog this time the top of one that was just so blindingly white and fluffy!
