Great day for 9 of us to trek 5Km over the challenging trails along the Koksilah River of Kingburne Park followed by coffee complimentary of Denis Lainchbury at the Shawnigan House. Next week plan is to visit Oliphant Lake walking from Spectacle Lake. --- Brook
Below are pics and map of todays Kingburne Park walk. This summery type weather is a pleasant bonus. And good company, too. --- DeNNis.
|A long steep descent to the river - a few laddered sections.|
A unique way to store your golf balls until the weather is
better. Two trees beside each other with ball storage.
|Still some downhill ahead.|
|Down by the riverside.|
|The river from the trail above.|
|The old mine shaft entrance. Who goes first???|
|He -- who has the light - obviously!|
|From the inside - looking out.|
The End - about 40 ft. inside. Thank god for flash lights and
|Fiddle head ferns.|
|Quite a few trilliums.|
