Below is my map and photos of todays Galloping Goose (Cowichan Valley Trail) walk. Fortunately we drew out the sun on the way. An enjoyable stroll and I did get a few shots. -- DeNNis.
We parked the cars where the Trail crosses Renfrew Rd (left) and proceeded down the trail to the
McGee Creek Trestle (right) with a stop at an interesting logging operation. (North would be
in approximately the top left corner of the map.)
No "No Trespassing" signs but certainly a barrier to motorized
The numbers on the ends we assume to be the lengths of these
logs - they look to be meant for use as Hydro poles - very long
and straight. (Derek counting age rings.)
|The waste was used as a filler for the road bed.|
|Just a few of the many piles of poles in the area.|
|The trail going down across the road to Shawnigan Lake Park.|
McGee Creek Trestle
The side railings have been renewed and raised - looks good.
Looking down over the road and Shawnigan Lake from the
Galloping Goose trail.
And see what greeted us as we returned to the cars --
BLUE SKY AND SUNSHINE.
