West Coast Trail

with No Comments

I’ve reposted this on my new site even though it’s getting old… I think its time to get out there again soon!

In July 2007 I set out to hike the world-famous West Coast Trail on the west coast trail of Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada. Lucky me to have a trail like this not far from where I live. (And by the way I absolutely love living here on the west coast of BC!). My oldest son Chris joined me on this great adventure and proved to be a worthy hiking companion, as he has in the past.

So I did complete the hike successfully!  No mishaps, falls our injuries except one lost hiking pole and 1 broken pole.  While it was a lot of work it was not as difficult as we expected… Of course we didn’t set any speed records, and had great weather. I do have great respect for those who have done the trail in 3-4 days and/or had never-ending rainfall.

We had some pretty long days out on the trail, so I didn’t have as much time to photograph as we would have camping in the RV. But there’s still a lot of photos!

The gallery on this page is days 1 through 3 (to keep the page size reasonable).

To see days 4 – 7 go here: Days 4 – 7 West Coast Trail.

Don’t miss the rest of the photos! Days 4 – 7 West Coast Trail.
