Cool and clear weather. Nice day for a walk along Wilkinson Rd. Nine of us did about 7 to 8 Km. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.

cross the bridge over Shawnigan Creek
Storm damage - you can see where the tree broke
off at the roots.

|The creek is running very well.|

reach their full height.

|Always have to get a shot of this guy.|

Waiting to see when this old Arbutus is going to split.
