          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 ...

          ... the other side and walking the trails to Melda's Marsh named after Melda Buchanan the first female Meteorologist in Canada and a staunt environmentalist. Had a little rest at the lake watched the ducks and saw where the beavers had mad a dam where the water is meant to flow under the bridge. Every time the people try to divert the water the beavers dam it up.

          I had heard about Coombs Country Market from my ex-colleague Linna and so just before Parksville we stopped there to take a look. I didn't realise how big it was with so many cars parked along ...

          Xmas away from home.

          A travel blog entry by richmott on Jan 05, 2011

          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 ...
