Cinder Lake, April 16th, 2016

commentary by Ron  photos by Pim and Astrid
One could not ask for a better day to hike weatherwise; not too hot, not too cold, no bugs & clear blue skies. Twenty three of us in total enjoyed a leisurely 7Km. hike today. Although we didn’t see a lot of wildlife, the signs were there; elk droppings and tracks as well as bear tracks were seen along the tailings' roads. We stopped for lunch among the red pines viewing ducks on the Serpent river. As always the company was good and it was nice to see some new faces as well as old faces that haven’t been out for some time.  My thanks to all those who came out today to support June & myself.

Twenty-three people enjoyed a warm sunny April 16 with an outing where we revisited Denison Tailings and Stollery Lake where this past Thursday's hike took place, but instead starting from Cinder Lake Road rather than Denison Mine Road the Thursday's group started from.  We followed Paavo's eagle across the tailings dam and dropped down to Stollery Lake to the weir at the end of the causeway where we had lunch.
