Hikers invite others to join them on July 2

Hiking close to home is a great way to enjoy magnificent views, green trees and hillsides

Five of the six who hiked high above the North Thompson Valley to Smith’s Woodlot on June 13.

Hiking  close  to home is a great way to enjoy magnificent views, green trees and hillsides, moderate  exercise and camaraderie. The North Thompson Recreation society has held two hikes off the Westsyde Road in the past two weeks, and are inviting anyone interested in hiking with them to join in future outings.

Zelda Copley led their first hike to Rexford Lake.  It was  a “bit wet” but fun none the less for the eight hikers and two dogs.

On June 13, six hikers led by Carman Smith, enjoyed the spectacular views to the north of the North Thompson River Valley from Smith’s woodlot.

The next hike most likely will be Toonie Tuesday at Sun Peaks on July 2. The Sunburst Chairlift ride is $2 for up and down,  and from the top there are a variety of trails for all levels to the ‘Top of the World’ and beyond. This is a good hike for kids and grandchildren  too. The chairlift starts running at 10 a.m. For more details call Carman or Barb Smith  at 250-672-9403.
