We got back from a 9 day trip to Western British Columbia two days ago.

The high temp was 78 degrees. Lovin it!:D

Get out of the heat was the object and see another part of the North American Continent that my wife hasn't been through.

Flew into Vancouver, and three hours later was on a ferry to Vancouver Island. In that country, ferrys are a fact of life. Drive on, go to the sun deck and take some awesome pics.

Spent one night in the "urban" territory and went to Euclid on the Pacific side of the Island. Basically its for fishing, and hiking. The hiking trails were incredibly manicured. We walked for miles and miles on trails that gave some opportunities to observe some incredible wildlife, and enjoy the cool temps.







Off the mainland, You have to get around on ferries.


One must be carefull on the trails. The wind was in our favor when coming on this bear. He finally realized we were there, but continued to eat. We backed out, and hit another trail..

Dennis you would search out and find a beaver to poke at on your trip wouldn't you.

My dads been going to Port Hardy for years now salmon and halibut fishing. Vancouver Island has more bear per square mile than anyplace else. The north end of the island has the bigger population of bears.

We were half way up the Island, and traveled through Port Hardy ;D Next time we go back, it will be to the northern part of the Island. The salmon season is in full swing. Boats with fishermen were coming in every day with full catches. Our room over looked the harbor, so we could see them.
More grizzly bears up north too. There is a small town with limited facilities up there we will go to. They say you can sit on the front deck and watch the whales and orca's cruise by on a daily basis. Speaking of orcas, I'll post up some really close photo's of some that were bumping our boat they were so close ;D

Jim Shockey has a house south of Port Hardy and runs his guid business all over the island. I'd love to bear hunt it someday.

Awesome. That's a vacation you don't want to go back home from.
