Men's Walking Group

As you can see on the map, our walk today pretty much circumnavigated the metropolis city of Duncan - from Lakes Rd on the east to beyond Beverly St on the north, by the E&N tracks on the west and the Silver Bridge on the south - a total of about 9 Km.

The map is pretty well self explanatory. We parked at McAdam Park and did a counter-clockwise loop (the yellow dotted trace).  It was interesting to see the flood control measures taken around the Somenos Creek area near Beverly St.

No worries about flooding at the present though.  Look at the water level - barely up to the knees of that little dog.

Still have to cross the bridge though - don't want wet feet.

Interesting - Part of a culvert on end with foliage growing out of it.

The Duncan "Fresh Water Eco-Centre".

Sewer water treatment pond??  It starts bubbling occasionaly.

This concrete wall carries on across the street behind us, and is built to accommodate a solid gate of some sort to stop water ingress.

Thirteen walkers today including the photographer.

Cowichan Commons (Walmart, Home Depot, etc.) in the distance below Mt Prevost.  If you zoom-in, you can make out the Memorial on Mt Prevost.

Paying attentiion to the walk signs.

Old Duncan Station (now the Museum) and Caboose.

Kept on moving past here -

and carried on under the "Silver Bridge".

Autumn is definitely in the air.

Across another bridge and back to where we started.
