A word from our Host...

 

May has nice light but gets cold quickly in the afternoon so the best time is from 11am-3pm. 

 
It is advisable that members stay close to lodge and be visible. 
 
Mountain weather can be unpredictable so come prepared for cold weather. The covered area of the lodge by the Olympic Ring Structure is where we will meet. 
 
Please wear good shoes and layers of clothing and keep packs light. In snow Hiking boots and cramp-ons are recommended. Other items to bring are hats, gloves, scarfs, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug repellent and whatever supplies you feel comfortable bringing. The parking lot is close by, has lots of room and there are no fees to use the provincial park. The washrooms are in the lower small lodge. 
 
Sometimes bears can be seen in the area. Please do not approach wildlife, and if seen walk away slowly in a calm manner.
 
Please regard and adhere to all signage instructions and do not disturb the natural settings and sensitive habitats. Take out what you bring in.
 
There are lovely trees, rock formations, plants and ponds that may have some snow. Please be aware that snow can be unstable, as can gravel, and so use caution in all areas.
 
If members wish to leave the group they should advise Jane before leaving the site.
 
There will be a list of participating artists - please sign in/out.
