6 july 2014 Powell River Canada

With a little shuttle boat we were brought from Lund (this is where the road to the north stops) to the start of the Sun Coast trail. We got on land in the middle of nowhere.Immediately we were amazed by the trees with orange-red stems. They looked painted. Arbutus menziesi, family of the mediterranian madroño ( strawberry tree). The exist only her till a few hondreds of km. down south at the pacific coast. After 30 min. walking up a steep slape we found out that we had started the hike in the opposite direction, the Sun Coast trail, still in the drizzling rain.
