Lots of rain last night but the weather cooperated with our walking group for today -- SUNSHINE. Six of us walked from behind Serious Coffee on Frayne Rd up to Rat Lake and return to Serious for coffee. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.
|Started behind Serious Coffee off of Frayne Rd (top left). Took a trail off Benko Rd and went in a large figure 8 over to Bamberton-Haul Rd, past Rat Lake, then down onto Frayne Rd.
|Up the trail off Benko Rd.
