Eight walkers did the Cowichan estuary to the mill.We were unable to carry on through the mill sight
along the river as usual.A gentleman from Western Forest Products explained of much activity with
trucks dumping sand removed from the logging channel so that logs could get to the mill.We then
crossed Tzouhalem road and walked the other side.The river was dry at our lunch spot but we did find a "lunch log" A few of us went on to explore more trails which brought us to a lovely spot on the
Cowichan River.We also discovered a medieval frontier village.We covered 8K of trails. Next Monday the 29th. we will walk the Cowichan River starting at Horseshoe Bend,walking various
trails along the river, and having our lunch at the campground. Meet at the Legion at 9:30am. V.M.
