Eleven of us walked about 6 Km today around the Quarry near Cobble Hill Park. The weather was a chilly 1 deg C to start but eventually the sun warmed us up a bit. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.
|Parked the cars near the entrance to Burnham Park. Did a clockwise loop. Through the yellow gate, down the Bamberton-Haul Road, finished up on Thain Road and back to the cars.|
|Off we go - down the Bamberton-Haul Road.|
|Passed this artwork alongside Bamberton-Haul Road.|
|Looking over to the Quarry on our right.|
|A bunch of ducks making patterns on the water near the|
southwest end of the Quarry.
|The patterns are best seen from a distance.|
|One of a few wet obstacles. Notice the ice patterns.|
|A little uphill climbing involved.|
|Panoramic view from the west side of the Quarry.|
|"Hello!" to Sally and Brian from Don.|
|Looking towards the southwest end of the Quarry.|
|The water is quite a ways down from here.|
|People have added Inukshuks for interest.|
|For any passerby with cold ears??|
|Another of those mysterious painted rocks.|
|It was found in the old Stone Oven,|
a couple layers above the open front.
|How do we get around this lake?|
|We found a bypass.|
|Arriving back where we started.|
