I feel like posting more photos from the juan de fuca trail. Since the whole trail is pretty much through a rainforest, this is a very typical sight on the trail.
This is one of the beaches on Juan de Fuca trail on Vancouver Island. Not the most beautiful beach on the trail with its big bulky rocks, but still a great place to sit back and relax to the sound of waves trying to reach the rocks.
I’m fascinated by BC’s coastline, by its ruggedness, amazing beaches, wilderness. A lot of the coastline is hard to get to given the geography, long distances, lack of proper roads etc. Jaun de Fuca trail is one way to get to the coastline and this is one the beaches along the way.
This tree was pretty far from the forest, it was hard to imagine how it could be ripped with its roots and carried that far. But I guess given the crazy waters and the vicious winds one shouldn’t be that surprised to see a tree lose to the winds.
I’m back again to the Juan de Fuca trail. Back not only to the folder that contains the trail pictures to be uploaded but back in a way these pictures do take me back sometimes. This was very close to our first campsite just about 8 kms from the start of the trail (I know we took it easy that day). My mates and I decided to go for a little stroll along the coast and that’s when I caught the shot, as the sun was hiding behind the tree.
Earlier this summer few of my friends and I went on a 3 day trail on the southwest of the Vancouver Island. Walking for 3 days straight to cover 50 km barely seeing any people really puts things into perspective. Especially when hitchhiking back to the beginning of the trail took us only 15 minutes. Can’t help but wonder how slow everything would be if we had to walk to places:)The beauty of doing a trail like that is right in front of your eyes. Walking with a heavy backpack through the forests through the hills up and down and up and down is tiring and tedious but it all seems to be worth it when you eventually come to a place like this.
