During an October trip to Campbell River, British Columbia, my friend took me out on several forays into the area. On one of those expeditions, we checked out the Strathcona Provincial Park and hiked a short distance in the forest. Cool and rainy weather had kept the forest floor wet and green – it was a magical walk. One could easily imagine gnomes and fairies watching us from under ferns growing in the shadow of giant fir trees.

Our destination was Lupin falls and the walk was rewarded as we approached the falls, with water cascading out of the sunshine, down through the forest and under a small wooden walking bridge on the trail.
