OMG, what a hike!
I just got back from a family backpacking trip - myself, wife, two sons, and a girlfriend. Seven days of hiking and camping on the West Coast Trail of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada was a wonderful week in the wilds. I finished my trip report, but wanted to share a few pictures now.
The trail has plenty of ladders...
First (and steepest) Ladder right at the southern trailhead.
Ladders Going Up and Down
Ladders Upon Ladders
Nice Bridge Across River
Not So Nice Bridge
Not So Nice Boardwalk
Cable Cars Are Fun
Easy Beach Walks
Not So Easy Rock Scrambles
The Trail was Flat...
And Not So Flat
Buoys hanging in trees marked the trail into the higher forest...
Or, they were just buoys in trees.
So, we added one found on the beach.
All the campsites were very nice.
So were the toilets at each camp.
We made some friends.
And enjoyed so many things along the way...
Until We Reached the End
