East Sooke park. Unnamed bog. Vancover island. Bc

Mostly just a hike in the rain but I did make us stop at the one bogy section in this giant park. The bog is near some copper mines so we checked that out as well.

Wow, we were planning on doing east Sooke today too... But we opted to go check out some mountainous logging roads. Found plenty of D rotundifolia only a few hundred metres past the gate, in most of the ditches.

No photos... Since I left my phone in the car and the girlfriends phone sucks hhaha

I want to go back with someone a little more eager to explore... Steve!

That's why I commented! Would have been a funny Meetup. Mydogs in town and she would have been scared of you r too.

We went up by Jordan River, and ran into some people harvesting cedar bark. Other than that it was a peaceful rainy foggy morning.

You should bring her and the dogs by sometime or we should all go for a hike. Our dogs are big but they love little dogs!
