Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park Photos

I’ve been going through the images of the Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park on Vancouver Island and thought it would be fun to share a few more. As I mentioned in the previous post, the Carmanah is more than just large trees.

    Hi Kevin,
    I wrote to you about finding a good place to raise a young family in Cowichan Valley. Thank you kindly for your response. We are all traveling out that way from T-Smog a.k.a. Toronto to check everything out. I must say though that upon returning to this site to look at photos and updates I became very excited to see this photo is your work! I brought this poster home from Concordia University in my first year living in Montreal as a student, almost 8 years ago and had spent many days looking at in my room, captivated by its beauty. This must be an OMEN! Thank You.

    That platform at the base of the three sisters is a little disturbing to me. It doesn’t look like much of a gap between the boards and the tree. And I fear that some of that is either resting on the trees or fastened to the trees. That would need to be redone often to avoid causing circulation problems for the tree – I can only hope that they would actually carry through.

    That Rocks shot is great. Love the varied coloration…we just don’t get that in Pennsylvania.

    Again, more awesome pics. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Mindy,

    That’s great you had a copy of the poster years ago, now you will have the opportunity to enjoy this fantastic valley if you move out here. I’ll keep you inspired so you will leave Toronto!

    Thanks Travis,

    I had exactly the same thought when I first approached the platform and it is a tight fit. In the big scheme of things it may not matter too much but they could have left a little more space. I’m not sure how it’s attached to the trees, perhaps just resting on them? Definitely better than the alternative however!

    Glad you like the rock shot, these are often my favourites.

    Great shots. I agree with Travis, I love the Rocks shot, but I really like the Ferns shot, too. The contrasting color between the green ferns and the trees in the background works for me.

    I’m just a sucker for trees and green. :)

    Kevin,
    What a beautiful, magical, wonderful place and such great photos. I love ferns in general, so I am particularly fond of the fern shots. Are the earlier ones a form of maidenhair? Someday I will travel to BC.

    The Carmanah is a really magical place. Well worth the effort if anyone makes it out to Vancouver Island.
