Cool morning - about minus 3 degrees. Therefore, a brisk start to our walk, but the sun sure felt good as the morning progressed. Map and many photos below. -- DeNNis.
|Parked cars on Deloume Road behind Tim Hortons (top right) and did a huge clockwise loop. I think the map is pretty self explanatory.|
|It is definitely fall weather.|
|The old stone bridge.|
|Lots of "big foot" leaves this year.|
|A few frozen puddles.|
|Looking up stream from the bridge on Shawnigan- Mill Bay Rd.|
|Just in case we should lose|
|Old wooden fence.|
|Crossing the bridge near Wilkinson Rd.|
|This old guy is always waiting to greet us as we go up|
|We cross the highway by Petrocan and head down Church Way.|
|Check out the headstones at the old church (now the Mill Bay|
and Bamberton Heritage Center).
|Many flights of stairs down to the creek.|
(Approximately 100 steps)
|The salmon are netted from the creek and put in holding tanks --|
|-- then sent up this railing in |
containers where they are
hauled off to Shawnigan Creek.
|The highway above us.|
|Not as large as past years.|
