Off To Explore a Mystical Forest with 1200 Year Old Trees,
In a Valley You’ve Never Heard Of
A quick note to say I’m off this morning in search of a mystical valley with my youngest daughters and Peter.
We have sketchy directions to a mountain lodge that no longer exists and then, apparently, there’s a rough mountain bike trail for 13 km to the trail head that leads to this mystical rainforest with 1200 year old trees: The Incomapleaux Valley. We’ve explored the northern tip of the rainforest last summer.
There is so little information on the valley that we plan to explore and it is grizzly/cougar country so, I’m leaving this calling card to let the world know where to look for us if we fail to return! Though, I have faith we will find the right trails and the magnificent, old growth, one-of-a-kind on Earth, inland temperate rainforest.
I hope the BC government hasn’t decimated it first! If you can believe it, this rare gem of ancient forest is nearly completely logged–gone!
