Best Places to See in BC - The Ancient Forest

The only known temperate rainforest
to exist so far from an ocean
is right here in BC.

The Ancient Forest is located
113 km east of Prince George (on
highway 16 heading towards McBride)
and really has to be one of the province's
best kept secrets.
A walk through this trail in nothing
short of spiritual.

During the winter months the area lies
hushed and still within it's blanket
of whiter than white snow.
The sounds of a forest coming to rest can be heard
at every step along this magical trail.
Ancient cedar trees stand
silently and majestically over this
landscape. Truly a rare opportunity
to see, smell and touch Western Red Cedars
estimated to be between 1,000 - 1,200
years old.

I was overawed to be here after hearing
about this ancient land several months ago.

I still feel the spirit of this forest.
With her older-than-I-can-imagine
trees and life surrounding you on every step,
it is as I imagine life should be.
