Bowser walk


One of many enjoyable walks through the Lighthouse Regional Trail
in Bowser, mid coastal Vancouver Island - this one occurred at the end of November last









It was such a peaceful environment and, if one has a vivid imagination (as I undoubtedly have!), it might seem you were walking through a fairy tale.

. . . but then by mid-February 2019, this same region was transformed by snow





 Ice formed on the surface of the water




. . . and so another adventure winds up

I love the name Bowser. I read the story about how it got it's name but I can't remember the details. - Margy

That looks to be good walking country, the growth is so luxuriant.

Margy @ Powell River Books -

The community of Bowser is named after William John Bowser, who served as the premier of British Columbia from 1915-1916. This small waterfront community was established in 1914, during the construction of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway. Logging has been the main economy in Bowser for years, but more recently, tourism has grown in importance.

During the 1930s, Bowser’s local hotel was infamous for featuring Mike the dog, who had been trained by his owners to receive payments and deliver change.

Even before I read your captions, the thought of walking in the fairy land came to mind. Beautiful! The snow and ice simply makes the place a setting for a different kind of fairy tales.

Beautiful photos. The woods in Vancouver Island remind me of areas where I hike in Washington State, US. Aren't we lucky to have those forests to explore?
My post features a hike in the “Issaquah Alps,” Washington State, USA.
