Exploring in The Forest
Elk Falls Park
Vancouver Island, BC
Elk Falls Park is a nice trail that is friendly for hiking beginners. It’s a great to walk as for having refresh. The powerful water make you feel alive when you get close to it. You can access Elk Falls by driving for 1 hour and 40 mins from Nanaimo.
~ My great friends “Kumiko & Sean” who live in part of Vancouver island took me and my best friend “Yu” to the falls when we’ve stayed at their place. The epic sight made us excited to explorer together in the forest.
Mysterious Old Market / Goats On Roof
icon-eye Goats On Roof
There is a sightseeing point on the way to go to Elk Falls. It is an old style market and is called “Goats On Roof”. Yes if you are lucky you will see some goats on the roof of shops. The most of products are local one, it should be good for getting souvenir.
~ At the moment, we could not see the goats on the roof, but we’ve met them at a park nearby the shops. We got cups of organic coffee and fresh bakeries, and felt o good in the fresh air.

There is the great nature with strong water sounds. You can access Elk Falls by driving for 1 hour and 40 mins from Nanaimo. If you are lucky you might meet wild elks.
~ Finally we were arrived at Elk Falls Park, and started exploring in the forest. We walked for about 500m? to get be at the falls. We stared the falls for a while in the chilly moisture under the warm sunlight.
Next by the falls, there is the suspension bridge for free to walk of course.

A Moss Planet
Here is for the nature snap photos of the forest in Elk Falls Park. Those photos will tell you how peaceful, quiet and beautiful place, but also strong nature power. What I’ve heard was just birds singing and powerful water from bit far away.
One Day In A Forest
For some reasons, there are moss curtains like on many branches of trees in this forest. They are very soft touches like real wool.
Water Mirror World
Before Being Falls
icon-exclamation-triangle Be Careful For Slippy Rocks!
You can reach to the strong stream, also can overlook the falls. The view and sounds are outstanding, but very very be careful! There is no fences to keep you safe. Also if the rocks are wet, the rocks would be super slippy. If you fall down to the water or falls, you are gonna be in super dangerous for sure.
A Travler & Stream
If you have a chance to go the park, you are going to have a good time, but be careful!
~ We had enjoyed for the so much nature exploring together. I really appreciate “Kumiko & Sean” for the great experience, time and letting us staying at their lovely place. I felt so lucky to meet them, and being their friend in my life. The world is unbelievably huge, but I’ve met them in my past travel (almost 1 year ago), and met each other again this time, still great friends… I left their place, and am on my new travel in Central America now. I am wondering to meet great people again like “Kumiko & Sean” some day somewhere in this travel too.
