Another hot day - good one for a new (?) 5Km walk. Around the Quarry in the reverse direction. Ten of us headed out and 10 finished. Finished with refreshments at Shawnigan Coffee House. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.
|Parked the cars near the entrance to Burnham Park (bottom right). Follow the trace in a counter-clockwise loop. For some reason the GPS showed a double trace along the Bamberton-Haul Rd.|
|Not a cloud in sight - just the remnant of a chem-trail.|
The old stone oven on the northeast end of the Quarry. I was
told the farmers used it to cook lime for their fields.
|Checking out the old stone oven. Good excuse for a break in the shade.|
|A couple views of the Quarry.|
|A big old Arbutus tree above the Quarry.|
|A good lookout point.|
|The northeast end of the Quarry.|
Down the slippery slope. Large rocks block ATV's
from using the trails.
|Somebodys puppy cooling off.|
|Back down the Bamberton-Haul Road to the cars.|
|The final obstacle - through or over the gate.|
