Location: Lower Falls Trail, Golden Ears Provincial Park, British Columbia
This is an example of the amazing moss-covered trees we saw along the trail. The climate is so damp that moss
grows on absolutely everything.
The most impressive sights were the huge stumps from the old-growth forest that once was.
This is the pristine Gold Creek that we could see for most of our walk. In behind you can see the Coast Mountains. At this time of the year there is even more snow on them than you can see here.
A similar view, with a bit more snow. You can see the emerald colour of the water here. We came across an artist sketching this view. Alyssa thought it would be really cool to swim across to the other side and hang out on that rocky beach.
And here we have the pièce de resistance...the lower falls. Just stunning to see in person.
