Best Places to See in BC, Old Growth Trees

I've traveled a fair bit in BC.
Documenting the province has
become a passion of mine. Some call
it an obsession.
The one thing that stands out for me
above all others are the old growth trees.
They're getting harder and harder to find.
No doubt there are some left.
I think it's extremely important to document them
Where they are located will remain with me.
I can keep Mother Nature's secrets.

Wind, rain, and the unfortunate hand of man
will make these magnificent trees a thing of
memory and legends in times to come.
To be close to one of these trees is to touch
our past. It's who we are.

I have no idea how old this particular tree is.
The privilege to stand in the presence
of such age, beauty and grace is life changing. It makes you
want to draw all that is precious in life close to your
heart and protect it forever.

Karen, I've been in several of those forests. It is indeed life changing!
Takes my breath away.
