Nine of us ventured out down behind the Legion for about a 7 Km walk along Bamberton-Haul Road. The weather was okay for the duration and we finished off with coffee at the Shawnigan Coffee House. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.
|Parked at the Legion. Did a clockwise loop from behind the Legion down Bamberton-Haul Rd and retraced our path part way back as shown. Then on down to where the horses were and back to the Legion on a different path.|
|The sign at the Legion.|
|Looking over to the Legion from the far side of the clearcut.|
|Seen in passing.|
|A bridge over soggy water.|
|This stump has an ever-changing array of stones with|
|Part of some very old "mountain bike challenges."|
|More of the same.|
|Quite an interesting trail.|
Down under the power-line onto Bamberton-Haul road.
|Some of the group just going onto Bamberton-Haul road.|
|An old teepee frame marks the|
spot where we head up to where
there used to be some huge tires.
|Up past a couple of the tires.|
|Ice covering some puddles here.|
|A strange sight just behind where the old tires lay. a viewing|
platform with some old life vests on a small algae covered pond.
Scared up a few ducks feeding here.
|Met this guy along the way. He|
made the tool he is carrying
which he uses to make trails.
He has created quite a few of
the trails we use.
|And his buddies.|
|Brook knew he would like some carrots.|
Strange place for this sign.
|This Christmas tree has seen better days.|
There should be photos of it some where
in the archives.
|Shopping for car parts.|
|What is that down by the left corner post of the Legion entrance??|
|Well! Bless my soul - another mystery rock.|
