After the Nuu-chah-nulth trail, we went on a shorter walk around a Bog trail. This had a very different feel from the rainforest walk, albeit with a walkway though the thick vegetation. Everywhere there were the white trunks of trees that looked as though they had been hit by lightning, and many of them just a single stake pointing up to the sky, so that they resembled totem poles, especially when a few branches or stubs were left jutting out sideways from the main trunk.

A completely different micro-climate from the rainforest, but somehow it reminded me of the Cirque de Moureze in southern France with its weird prehistoric rocks. Jenny said you could set a film in the landscape and I think that’s right, it has a very other-worldly atmosphere.
