Seven Ramblers enjoyed a warm, pleasant and scenic hike along the trail overlooking the Pinnacles, or sandstone hoodoos, and Baker Creek in Quesnel on Sunday, July 17.
A clear sky resulted in a temperature well above 20 C. Fortunately, no one was in a big hurry so there was no real risk of overheating.
Two of the participants - Scott and Dominic - live in Quesnel and proved to be very able guides as we walking along the trail. Highlights included the sightings of two woodpeckers, one small and one very large, and just generally great views under fine weather.
Upon completing our main hike, we also made a brief trip out to the Claymore low mobility park to check out an erratic - essentially a large rock carried down by a glacier during the last ice age and left in the middle of what is now a lush, green forest.
The day ended with a stop at Frank's Market for ice cream and, for five of us, a drive back to Prince George.
Thank you Jackie for leading what turned out to be a memorable hike for all the right reasons.
