Saw a lot of moose tracks on the hike. Mama moose prints and baby's prints right beside hers. This picture is of baby's.
Saw loads and loads of different kinds of mushrooms and will be sure to bring along a mushroom guide next time.
Enjoyed gorgeous views.
Admired just how quickly the landscape can change on an 8km hike from dry, sunny plateaus to wet, shady cooler areas with completely different plants and trees. Mother Nature is very cool that way. This is a 55-60km hike and our plan is to hike one section each weekend (if we are in town) this Autumn and then do the whole thing in one go next Spring. Our family wants to do the West Coast Trail as soon as E is old enough and this will be good practice for the boys on hiking, carrying their own supplies and staying overnight on the trail. (good practice for S and I too, actually)
Watched this fellow heading somewhere in a hurry.
