Seven of us hiked from Deepwater Main to the old copper-mine. There was water on the old road but not as much as expected considering the heavy rains Quadra has been experiencing. It is only about 1.5 km to the mine but the road is steep. The main shaft entrance has fallen in but there is a good view from the side shaft.
We then returned to the Deepwater Main and hiked down it to Deepwater Bay. The creek was running high and the two waterfalls were beautiful. We encountered our only shower of the day on the way down. At the beach we could not believe our good fortune as we ate our lunch in the sunshine before we returned to the vehicles. The whole trip was about 7 km with 335 vertical meters up and down in about 3 hours.
