Juan de Fuca Trail

Juan de Fuca

I recently hiked along the Juan de Fuca trail – a nice 47km stretch of trails along the south coast of Vancouver Island – over four days with some good friends. There is quite a lot of variation in the terrain, including sandy and stony shores, boulder fields, sheer rock beaches, trails along shore-line cliffs, steep ravines, open trails, cutblocks, boardwalks, and many ups and downs. A fog rolled in about midway through our trip, making for some pretty eerie sections. There were many friendly folks along the trail from all over, and while it was busy, it never felt crowded (except perhaps at a campsite or two). Here is a selection of shots from the trek:
