Cathedral Grove

















Cathedral Grove is park of Macmillan Park it is located in the middle of Vancouver Island on the road to the Wild West Coast.

In 1996 a terrrible storm ripped through BC...it destroyed thousands of trees in Cathedral Grove, many of the trees were more than 800 years old. I can only imagine how beautiful it was....it certainly is majestic now.

We were talking to a park ranger, she told us that her first day on the job there was a couple visiting the park on their honeymoon, a tree fell on their car and they both died instantly.
On our path at Birchwood a Jenny Chang and her family were hiking....a branch fell and she died.
Windy days stay away from tall trees!!

Geeze...maybe I can come up with more good news?

On your way to Tofino you had to pass through Port Alberni what was your perception of it?

Alaric,
Port Alberni?
I liked what I saw. It's a real town, not a town full of tourists, a working town...surrounded by beautiful forests.
We didn't get a chance to see the BIG water bomber on Lake Sproat.
Are you from Port Alberni?
