After two boat tours and quite a bit of driving we were looking forward to doing some hiking at our next stop: Strathcona Provincial Park, located in the middle of Vancouver Island.
You may remember I was here before, but with Marije. Back then we walked the Paradise Meadows loop trail, and the hike we did today started with that very same loop.
Here are some pictures from our 4 hour hike on the Forbidden Plateau; as you can see we had excellent weather and beautiful fall colours:
Lunch break at Helen McKenzie Lake:
And these were taken back on the Paradise Meadow loop again:
It was a truly beautiful hike, if it was a bit closer to home I would walk it every day!
