Sunday Hike and the Sites Along the Way

Click on the pictures for a larger view :)

We start our hike behind Nanaimo's power station -- We started out at 12:50pm & ended at 5:50pm








My dad climbing up an almost dry waterfall


Diablo at the top of the waterfall, the water really moves in the winter.


Hoshi cooling off in some of the river's remaining water


What's left of the river


A trail off of the one we took


A face in the bark


No trespassin - By order of the Ministry of National Defense ... official stuff!!!


Another warning sign by the Ministry of National Defense


Came out of the woods and found this road


After exploring the road we found this 'puddle' for the dogs to cool off in














The View


Diablo taking a rest


Some flowery weed things


Taking the road up, according to our GPS we were right on top or our previous trail, all be it at a much greater elevation


One last view before heading back down


Coming back down


Diablo waiting up ahead


Mushroom


A rope to help you up if you're heading for the top of Mount Benson


Danger


Diablo and Hoshi


A view of the bluffs across the valley


Looking up towards Mt. Benson


A lonely thistle


The path through the meadow, with weeds taller then my 5'5" height





Another trail off of the one we were on





Signs everywhere up there


Broken bridge


Back at the power lines





Looking down on the start of our trail


Have a good week :)
