IT’S TIME, IT’S TIME!!!!
It’s time for our monthly hiking trip once again – woot woot!
This upcoming Sunday, July 27th we are heading out to Oliphant Lake through Spectacle Lake. We will gather at 8:00am in the parking lot of Spectacle Lake (http://www.cvrd.bc.ca/index.aspx?NID=124 directions on link)
For those whom haven’t been before this hike leads us to a great swimming hole – so bring stuff to jump in! It’s a beginner level hike with a mild grade. Not a long hike really but long in the sense that we spend a fair amount of time at our picnic spot to do have swim time. Dogs are invited of course and are able to go offleash once we leave the Spectacle Lake area.
Things to bring:
- Small snacks to share
- Plate to munch
- Cup to cheer
- Camera to remember
- Swimming gear to plunge
- Towel, blanket or jacket to sit upon
Please let us know you are coming by zipping me off a return email so we do not leave without you!
See you then kids!
