My Actifit Report Card: July 18 2022
Hey everybody and thanks 🙏 for stopping by! 😎👍😁
Today’s was the day! We were headed out to the Gold Mine Trail and a special friend of Jan’s was coming with. You’ll see her soon in a picture.
It rained last night and usually, rain isn’t a good thing for hiking this trail as there is one larger creek and a couple smaller ones to traverse. Rain 🌧 means more water 💦 in these streams usually, but that didn’t seem to be the case after all. There were no issues with it 😁
We were going to the location of the gold safe first for it is still there along with the remnants of an old ore car.
This is Jan with her friend, Tamara.
Tamara was loving every minute of the hike. She’d never been to the Gold Mine Trail; the history about this is rich and a total scandal!

The trails are through cedar and Doug Fir forests, up steep inclines and local native plants everywhere. It was a perfect day for this hike despite the overcast conditions and a bit of humidity.
@actifit-lamb and a brother/sister German team came along for the hike. Actually, there 7 lambs present but because of the damp conditions, they didn’t even want to come out of the backpack and get dirty! Maybe next time. Anyway, Willabella and Wendell did enjoy some time by the fire 🔥 pit.
Just inside the fire 🔥 pit, we found a 7 year old snail 🐌 I decided to move it as I figured it might just get further into the pit and someone might come along and start a camp fire 🔥 He would be one cooked little snail! 🐌 🙀🙀🙀
They work far too hard to produce their shells so I figured he deserved to live!
Part of the remaining foundation of the dancehall can still be seen.
I have more pics but will share them in the coming days.
That’s gonna be it for now. Take care and enjoy your day! Please continue to pray for Ukraine 🇺🇦
