The next hike will be on Saturday, 8th December.
We meet at the Ball Park in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
Last week I was not able to be on the hike, but I understand it was a visit to this wonderful and quite rugged area on the west coast of Texada that lies between Cook Bay and the boundary of the South Texada Provincial Park. It's only in the last couple of years that we have begun to explore there and we have come to realize just how rewarding it is to seek out new trail routes through the areas of forest and open grassy bluffs and down to the shoreline.
Micheline Macauley took the photo for this week on a group hike to this area last weekend. You can see below the tree on the left just how steep this terrain can be, but the effort involved is well rewarded.
A lovely view of Lasqueti Island looking across the Sabine Channel from a bluff south-east of Cook Bay. The tree on the left is a Maritime Juniper.
