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?
