A beautiful summer day yesterday at Englishman River Provincial Park. Lots of young peeps swimming in the cool waters or just hanging out.

The Douglas Firs trees along the banks of the river are hundreds of years old and they enjoy hugs.

This happy stone face greets you at the top of the hill heading towards the falls.  It is hard not to smile back at him on this fantastic day of celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday!

A beautiful hike on the Wild Pacific Trail takes you to the Terrace Beach Lookout. Lots of amazing photo opportunities and a great way to connect to wild nature!

windswept forest

The forest around the lookout is thick and windswept, a direct result of the Pacific winter storms.  Today a calmness overcomes the forest and the stillness is mesmerizing in its totality.  Cosmic consciousness begins here – where nature and human connect.

Moisture is continuous in this mossy forest.  Notice all the different shades of green in the many layers of forest.  The air smells sweet and organic connecting with us deep in our lungs.  I couldn’t feel any better on such a beautiful day!

Go find your own nature to explore and heal today. 🙂
