Men's Walking Group

Ten of us brave souls ignored the sweltering heat today to walk about 9 Km along the Cowichan Valley Trail.  I guess you could call the theme of the walk, "Where have all the flowers gone?"  Along the way we decided to visit an area where previously we had seen a bunch of trees cut for telephone poles.  --  DeNNis.

The top yellow trace is our driving route out Renfrew Rd.  We parked the cars where the Cowichan Valley Trail crosses Renfrew Rd (top left).  I  noted the Kinsol Trestle location further up in that corner of the map.  We walked from there to where we had seen a bunch of trees cut for poles.  Then we headed back along the same route with a short detour along Oland Rd .

Shadows are always interesting subjects.

A nice home for the horse.

One of a few gates where traffic crosses the trail.

Rest time!

End of the flower season??

Still lots of green in spite of the heat.

Some miniature humans in contrast.

Not too much green here.

This looked

An interesting old time fence covered in moss.
Does this keep the bears out of the garbage can?

My version of a "Selfie."

We did sit beside some beautiful "Indian Paint Brush"
when we stopped for coffee at Shawnigan Coffee House.
