Rain Forest

Two weeks ago I posted a couple of photos of a waterfall in Goldstream Provincial Park, just outside Victoria. One of the most daunting aspects of a trip to Goldstream is that the forest is so overwhelming. It is such a rich, lush, busy chaotic environment it is very difficult to capture in a photograph. However, I offer these two photographs as a first attempt to picture some of our local rain forest. Above is a fairly typical bit of the forest and below is the waterfall in context.

Aren't our temperate rain forests amazing? Have you ever made it over to Washington to visit the Hoh and Quinault rainforests? They are beautiful.

'Lush" indeed is the word to describe our rain-forests that are such treasures where every shade of green is to be found.

Many of BC's ancient forests have never had fires because of our wet climate. The result is trees measured at up to twenty feet in diameter and two thousand years of age, and more !
They deserve all the protection we can offer them as precious gems of bio-diversity world heritage.
