Trial Hike -- West Coast Trail

Tomorrow is February first, and we will all strap on our pedometers and begin a shake-down hike along the West Coast Trail. For those of you who don't know it, the general information for this trail is here. The West Coast Trail is along the west coast (hence the name!) of Vancouver Island, off British Columbia's coast. It is 47 miles long (75 kilometers), and we are estimating three weeks to hike it. (2.5 miles per day would allow you to complete the trail in 19 days.)

Here is our starting point, the village of Bamfield.

Check out more of what we're going to experience here.

For the record, I've never hiked this trail but I have camped at Pacific Rim National Park just north of the West Coast Trail a couple of times. It's awesome scenery.

Very, very pretty.

I'm psyched. And being that it's virtual, we can even ignore the ice and snow on the trail :)

I soooo need this view. Looking forward to it.
