Best Places to See in BC - Old Growth Trees

There are still some old
growth trees here in British Columbia.
I won't get into the political and
economic halabaloo
regarding the logging of these
What I will say is
every single person needs to be near one of
these behemoths once in your lifetime.
To stand near one is awe inspiring.
To actually touch one brings you
to an understanding of how really
really huge they are.
And how important their presence is
on our planet and in our lives.

BC is home to some of the
most astounding old growth forests,
or more accurately what is left of them.
I found this beauty along east Harrison Lake.
Right next to an active logging camp.
I can only pray that she remains intact.

I, for one, feel honored to
have been in the presence
of these giant trees.
