Waterfalls and epic sunsets is all I know. This beauty was taken at the base of Della Falls which claims to be the tallest waterfall in Canada. It's a beast to get there. You have to book a water taxi across Great Central Lake then hike for about 17kms through some easy at first then challenging trails. Don't forget the ten essentials and some damn mosquito repellent cause they attack like crazy. πŸŒžπŸŒ³πŸŒ»πŸ†—οΈ #yyj #victoriabuzz #victoria #huffpostcanada #britishcolumbia #explorevictoria #explorevancouverisland #vanisle #sharevi #vi #hiking #hike #staywild #betheadventure #outdoors #pnw #pnwcollective #camp #camping #dellafalls #explorebc #explorevanisle #brmblife #strathconapark #waterfall #canada

Watching a sea lion colony is a frantic, noisy & smelly experience! Their colonies are dotted throughout the Salish Sea, these enormous marine mammals would easily be top of the food chain if it wasn't for those pesky orcas. Who can be seen swimming close to the colonies looking to pick one off for dinner!
They say wolves, bears, and cougars walk around this rainforest... sadly I never got to see any 🐻🐺
Come on down and talk to Todd and be bear and cougar aware ! Today only #bear #farmersmarkets #cobblehill #explorevancouverisland #local

Harsh light and tough for a decent photo but it was fun watching the cubs play while mom fed nearby 🐾

β€œNorth Coast Trail Story” Day 7: A hiking day again! We packed up camp and headed out on longest km day of the trip, Nels Bight to SAN Josef Bay, 20 km distant. This part of Cape Scott Park is popular as the trailhead is accessible by road. We passed one group of 29 strung out along the trail headed for Nels Bight for a weeks stay. The trail passes through some amazing stands of trees but the Sitka Spruces are my favourites. Once you hit the junction from the trailhead to San Josef Bay the trail again changes to a wide gravelled accessible path, quite a contrast to Day 1 on the North Coast Trail. San Josef has 2 camping beaches and we elect to use the North beach which has the water source location. However there is that small problem with a headland and the tide! We arrived before the tide was low enough to pass and had to wait a bit but the spectacular scenery, sunshine and waves made it a pleasant wait. Once around the headland we set up our last camp of the trip. We checked the tide tables and determined we’d need to be up and ready for low tide around 700 am the next morning. Another gorgeous evening tops off another long trail day. . . . . . #northcoasttrail #northcoasttrailhiking #hikethenorthcoasttrail #explorethenorthcoasttrail #explorevancouverisland #explorecapescottprovincialpark #explorebcparks #explorepnw #nelsbight #sanjosefbay #sitkaspruce #sitkasprucetrees #capescottprovincialpark #getoutside #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #keepitwild #backpacking #backpackingtrip #takeahike
It's National Hammock Day and on Vancouver Island North we love to relax among the forest and fauna. Cassandra Casely photo www.getlostfindyourself.ca #gonorthisland #myVIN #explorevancouverisland #exploreBC
'Take the last train to Parksville and I'll meet you at the station' 🎢 (For those of you who don't know Vancouver Island, it has many decommissioned rail lines that are ripe for exploring...and the town of Parksville nearby...so this song is perpetually stuck in my head! 😲)

Don’t know much about grasshoppers but this on looks a bit beaten up? Is it missing the lower portion of its back leg and the antennas look damaged too. It has interesting stripped wings and clicks as it flys. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ“·πŸŒŽ #grasshopper #salishsea #nanaimo #explorenanaimo #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #naturalhistory

"If you're wondering what it's like to live here, little buddy, I should tell you that all the float homes have access to potable water and 30 amp power. Also, the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (@vicharbour ) provides sewage hookups to prevent the discharge of black water. Owners need to pay monthly moorage fees, and they pay property taxes. But even so, by Victoria standards, where the housing costs have soared, these homes tend to be low-priced. In fact, they are rarely listed for more than a day before being bought for the asking price, or more. There are currently 33 berths in the Fisherman's Wharf Float Home Village. All of them are occupied, and aside from the residents, they share the neighborhood with gulls, seals, eagles, geese, raccoons, herons, otters, and cormorants." - Comrade (the human) β€’ "What do you say, buddies? πŸ€” Would you like to live here?" - Sinatra _____________________________________________β€¨πŸ“’: @tourismvictoriabc #️⃣: #ExploreVictoria
