Gowlland Tod

Taking a trip down memory lane today, recalling a fabulous house exchange on Vancouver Island at the start of 2014 (so apologies if some of you have seen these images previously!)
 
One of my "expeditions" was to Gowlland Tod Provincial Park - the day snow fell in the region
 
 
 
The woodpeckers have been busy!


 
It wasn't until I met up with the Canadian exchangers again last month (during another trip by them to Australia), that I was informed these numbered boxes on poles in the Tod Inlet are actually nesting boxes



Being captivated by contrasts, this blackened log with its covering of greenery, really caught my eye!
 


The Tod Inlet frozen over - a rare sight I was told . . .



 
. . .  and the moss/lichen draping the trunks and branches reminded me of something out of "The Chronicles of Narnia" (or perhaps I just have an over-active imagination!)







 
Aah ....... this little taste of Heaven has "topped me up" for the day, so I'll now link up with
 
 
and pray that you have your own taste of heaven in your part of the world too.
 
(with grateful thanks to our hosts)

Once upon a time (2007) I visited Vancouver and did a road trip to Whistler. I wish I had time to stop at all the beautiful towns in between.

Wow...what a beautiful area, filled with so many good things for nature and us humans to explore. Love the idea of the nest boxes.

Great post.

I can see why you would refer to it as a taste of heaven.
