Alright so I had so much fun on Sunday I had to check out some more of the island trails, one of the guys from Sunday was good enough to join me!

I pay close attention to the road in front of me while driving haha... here's a pic out my back window. (Don't worry, I got lucky, my eyes were on the road in front... just the one arm & camera were pointed back)

They had construction on the Malahat, looks like they're making another attempt to widen it in some spots

I was shown a couple awesome camping spots...first one was really loud

Second one was a little quieter

Island tradition?

Onto the next sight to see!

And what a sight it was!

Clay pits! We played in here for a while

The clay was really ... clayee... (?) So John did most of the playing and I took pics

The "road" in & out of the clay pits...

Then it was time for some water sports. Water was actually pretty deep although the pics don't show it, I -almost- got stuck on "something" under the water, not sure what the hell it was...

Up the rocks to the first waterfall!

Looks easy from this side

Until you see it from this side, (Easy enough for anything that isn't a stocker)

The waterfall!

From the top of the waterfall, looking down at John who was spotting me a different route

At the top of the waterfall, is another little waterfall
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a1/Sinistress/Midweek074.jpg
Made it up the little waterfall with some spotting!

Then of course, what is a day of wheeling, without getting stuck!
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a1/Sinistress/Midweek078.jpg
Naturally it had to be sunny all day, except when we were both trying to get my Jeep unstuck lol... then it was hailing.

Undeterred, onwards we went... to the hills!

Its fun being at the top on this super narrow ledge type thing, feeling like you're going to topple over the edge, and trying to figure out a way down
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a1/Sinistress/Midweek080.jpg

Heading into the area just past the campsites, we went past this... hmm... muddy!
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a1/Sinistress/Midweek016.jpg

Not wanting to feel left out, John decided to see if he could get stuck. (He succeeded)

Nice pictures and story...


The next time you go wheeling on the island you should give Rccuiser a jingle..
