Mom and I went hiking this morning. We took the “Saddle trail” up Mt. Arrowsmith. It was a very steep hike, but only took us 1.5 hours from trailhead to the ridge!
The view was, of course, beautiful… could see East to Nanaimo and Vancouver, and West to Port Alberni, Sproat Lake, Great Central and beyond. If hadn’t been so hazy (from the past few weeks straight of hot days) we might have seen the Pacific on the horizon!
A wonderful hike… lots of wild flowers, blueberries, huckleberries, a squirrel, a Garder (sp?) Snake, some bear poop and a little bear fur!
