    Day Two
    Today's stage started with a long 14 km climb and we settled into the back of our wave until we hit some new single track. We climbed 500m of elevation but hit a backlog straight away. Luckily we were able to get around them and began another technical decent with slippery rock faces this time. Our hands hurt with the long technical decent and we got a short respite before the Enduro downhill. Once ...

    Wow Time Went by Quickly

    A travel blog entry by justjan on Dec 03, 2012

    Was able to spend 13 glorious days with mom and dad and help out with 'fixing' things as well as cooking dinners and making lunches. Gave dad a much deserved break. I could see the stress in him from helping take care of mom. It certainly requires a lot of patience!!!

    I've noticed a deterioration in my mom's health with the progression of the Alzheimers, but she still remembers who we are, so embracing that BIG time. Throughout our 13 days I just tried to be the daughter I should ...

    ... Lesley own and then drove just out of town to a logging road down to their woodland property. After 25kms of dusty logging road we arrived at the woodland paradise that leads down to their own private beach. They had a few old caravans for storage and a fifth wheel trailer (RV) to use over night. Fifth wheels over here are huge campers that are towed by a big pick up truck, but theirs has been set in place on the hill over looking the bay. We spent a bit of time clearing up some of ...

    Thursday was a 45 minute trip to Mt Washington, Strathcona Park once we had ferried across from Denman. This mountain has a myriad of ski runs where poeple from the Island flock to come winter. Their "winter" ran almost into summer as this year they were still skiing at the end of June. As a consequence as we walked a track that climbed steadily between cedar and douglas fir trees we inevitably ran into snow drifts! Being summer and ...

    There's no other place like it in Canada. Imagine yourself midst an ancient 800 year old forest covered in Moss, ferns and full of fresh crisp air.

    This ancient forest is home to a 800 year old Douglas Fur that stands 76 m tall and 9m round (taller than the leaning tower of Pisa).

    Unfortunately, the photos do not do it justice. This is truly an amazing place.
