I went on a 4 day hiking trip with our Venturer Scouts to Cape Scott Provincial Park. For those that don't know where it is, here is a map to give you an idea: Cape Scott Hiking Map (external link)

Here are a few photos from the beautiful wilderness of Northern Vancouver Island:

1. The lush rainforest

Beautiful set! Does it snow in this area? I especially enjoy your celestial shots!

Thanks - No, It might see a small bit of snow 1x or 2x per year, but mostly RAIN, RAIN and a bit more RAIN on top of that.

? Not sure of which celestial shots you are referencing... ?

Photo number 2 and 3 and maybe number 5. I consider all sky photos to be celestial. :-)

I have to get up that way soon!

Nice shots. I grew up on the North Island and haven't got back to the Cape since leaving as a teenager.
Your pictures give me some incentive.

Ah! of course - good point.

Don't go in the winter. Apparently there can be 30m waves off the tip of Cape Scott!

I love it there! It has changed a LOT as a park, and now there is also the North Coast Trail that goes across the North towards Port Hardy from Nissen Bight!
