Lots of rain last night but the weather cooperated with our walking group for today -- SUNSHINE. Six of us walked from behind Serious Coffee on Frayne Rd up to Rat Lake and return to Serious for coffee. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.
|Started behind Serious Coffee off of Frayne Rd (top left). Took a trail off Benko Rd and went in a large figure 8 over to Bamberton-Haul Rd, past Rat Lake, then down onto Frayne Rd.|
|Up the trail off Benko Rd.|
|Met a couple canine friends of Ed that wanted to join us.|
|Lots of Salmon berries that were not quite ready for eating.|
|Looks like a good crop of broom coming, too.|
|Rat Lake is almost fully covered with Lily Pads.|

|Very little water in Handysen Creek.|

|Just about back where we met the dogs.|
These Arbutus trees make a nice arch
