The Ancient Forest Part I

About 111 kms east of Prince George, is the Ancient Forest (Rainforest/Snowforest).  The Ancient Forest is a very old grove of Cedars.  This grove is very special because it is not near an ocean.

I spent this weekend with fellow hikers, we moved donated wood from the parking lot to the beginning of where there will eventually be a Universal Boardwalk built so that people with disabilities can also visit the forest.  It was hard work!  I also painted a couple of beams on Saturday that will be used to hold up a much bigger sign at the entrance of the parking lot.

People from all over the world come to see the Ancient Forest.  On Saturday, I met this couple from Tennessee, who were on a 40th anniversary trip to Alaska.  I am not sure how they managed to drive and park their RV in the parking lot, not designed for big rigs.  :)

There's me and the rest of our working party on Saturday.  2 of them came to help offload lumber, and then had to leave, so there was just 3 of us working on Sat!!  We stayed the night so we didn't have to go anywhere.  What a gorgeous place to camp!
More to come!  (Believe it or not, there is bicycle connection, albeit a small one..but still)
