We traveled down to Revelstoke National Park.
Our first hike of the day was in the Inland Rain Forest. Even though I was born in British Columbia I had forgotten how big the cedars can get.
Most of the trail we got to walk on these lovely walkways and not have to worry about tripping over giant roots.
This was perhaps the largest of the cedars we saw. No way would I be able to hug this one.
The trees seemed to stretch up forever.
The canopy in some areas was so thick we couldn't see through it at all. However that did enable lots of undergrowth to occur.
We have these growing in Saskatchewan as well, they just don't get as big.
After this short hike we traveled to our next hiking stop, Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk.
They were not in bloom so we did not have to suffer the usual stinky smell. I can just imagine what the trail would have smelt like if we would have visited in May.
The National parks in Canada have "red chairs" in them, kind of a signature. I actually managed to get Harvey to sit in one of them on this short hike.
We traveled down to Revelstoke for lunch and then headed back.
Thought I would take a picture of the tunnels we had to pass through on the highway.
We traveled through 5 of these tunnels through the mountains.
Where they could not engineer a tunnel road crews just blasted through the rock leaving sheer cliffs on each side.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
