Gold Creek

We did a family walk along the scenic Gold Creek in Golden Ears Provincial Park, B.C., Canada and saw lots of interesting things along the way.
In the forest we came upon this scene – a tree piggy backing on the back of a stump.

The colours and upward streaks on the stump reminded me of some paintings that the famous Canadian artist Emily Carr has painted.  I love the way she has depicted the west coast’s forests.
The moss on the tree created some funny cartoon like images.  This one looks like a bird that has been flying for a very long time, wearing a pilot’s cap with ear flaps and has snow (green snow) building up on its beak.

This one looks like a hand puppet.

 And this one, this is stretching the imagination, but I think that some of the moss clumps look like koalas.

 We came across a water-logged fungus, a Salamander, Canada Geese, squirrels, orange breasted robins and we saw a Bald Eagle flying over Alouette Lake.

At the start of Gold Creek, we came across this very typical Canadian scene that often adorns the front cover of magazines.

 Gold Creek is fed by water from glaciers and in some parts the creek is a stunning emerald and turquoise colour.  The walk is about 1 km to reach the lake at the end of the creek.

It is a really scenic walk for all the senses: beautiful sights among the smell from cedars and Douglas fir.

Thanks for visiting and I hope the upcoming week is a great one for all.
