Banff – a small town, but one of the main touristic places around. An interesting place for hiking… weather permitting!
From Port Hardy to Prince Ruppert – BC Ferries are taking passengers and cars through the Inside Passage.
Fog over Port Hardy on the day before our scheduled departure. The ferry left early morning, and again there was plenty of fog as the ship got out of the small harbour.
Fortunately the sun came through half an hour later and we enjoyed two thirds of the Inside Passage crossing in the sunshine. Closer to Prince Ruppert some clouds appeared, but on general consideration, we had best views all along the way.
There were often whales close enough to be seen around, but unfortunately to far away to take pictures…
After an seemingly endless drive from Prince Ruppert to the East, mainly forests on both side of the highway at all times, we are amazed to have magnificient views of Mon^unt Robson.
When he heard, that we intended to visit Vancouver Island, one of my friends said: “Well, you’ll see a lot of trees!” and he was right. On Vancouver Islands as well as in all British Columbia, we’ve seen more and bigger trees than ever. The most beautiful one’s being 1000, some even 1500 or 2000 years old.
End of September we were amazed by the colors.
Noz enough maples for the great Indian Summer colors, but yellow and orange made us discover really stunning landscapes.
