So grateful to Chris for filling our summer with adventures across BC and Alberta. Our last camping trip was to Tofino - the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island - and it was pretty glorious. The first half of the trip was socked in by fog; when the fog lifted, it was awesome. Because of Covid, the majority of the public parking lots were closed - so the only folks on the beach were from our campground. It was incredible to hike for hours and hours down an endless beach and to see only a few people throughout the whole day. Bear and wolf tracks and scat! The most 'wild' and unpopulated beach I have ever been on.
Day 1 - tidepools, exploring the foggy beaches
Wolf tracks? Bear tracks? Definitely bear scat.
Day 2 - at first, a very foggy day (and check out those bizarre pelagic goose barnacles!)
