Large Cedar Trees

While we were on holidays we passed through Highway 16, west of McBride BC.  The forests in this area are classified as part of the Interior Wetbelt. You recognize it as soon as you start to see the large trees and dense forests.  A local group has worked to reserve an area which they call the "Ancient Forest".  It has lovely 2.3 km trail and is easily accessed off the highway.  It has a very definite coastal feel and the Red Cedars are as impressive as any on the coast.  The forest floor is dense Devil's Club as well, in case the cedars don't make you feel coastal.  The example in this photo is of a large branchy cedar, but there are many that are tall and straight.  It's well worth the visit if you are in the area or just missing seeing a coastal type forests that is common on our part of the coast.
