Day three of our Terrace trip was spent walking through a gorgeous rainforest down to a beautiful sandy beach in Lakelse Lake Provincial Park. Michael, my partner's brother-in-law, guided us to the head of the trail before heading back to his house. The temperature was around 29 degrees, by the time we had walked the trail and sat in the sun for a while, we enjoyed rolling up our pants and cooling off by wading in the water. We found a tiny toad camouflaged perfectly hiding in the sand, shaded by a gigantic cedar log lying on the beach. A small squirrel was busy finding food on the trail and the light filtered through the canopy of giant trees illuminating the Devil's Club leaves.
When we drove to Kitimat, the road was lined with golden wild flowers. We found the foundation of the Hudson's Bay building - all that remained were moss covered stairs. I saw some beautiful Foxgloves which reminded me of my childhood in England. We had a magical day.
