Vancouver Island

Not long ago I posted about Quamichan Lake and its many moods. The photos in that post were taken from the only place that you can park a car. Yesterday we found another access to Quamichan Lake, this one down a short trail in a beautiful housing development. There was a small fishing wharf but […]
