A walk in a Westcoast Rainforest

Went for a little hike through a Westcoast Rainforest. The trail is called the Chris Hatfield Trail and is located on Saltspring Island on Canada's west coast. It's somewhere between 1 and 2 kilometers long and is dense with trees and moss, but is an easy hike. Here are some photos.

A pond, a moss covered fence and a wet log bench add to the charm of the trail.

Moss covered branches on every tree. I'm sure if we stayed in one spot for more than a few minutes, we'd be covered in moss too.

The trail is spongy from the decaying flora, making it easy to walk on.

Lots of interesting places for photo ops.

I'm still not quite sure whether this is a moss covered stump or some swamp creature rising up to consume unsuspecting passers-by.

Moss, ferns, cedar trees, creeks and trails.

And then we pop out into the open at the ocean and find a grassy point covered in daffodils. Who could ask for anything better?

Amazing set. I have a planted aquarium and all these moss on trees remind me how hard it is to grow them on my tank
Thanks for sharing.
