Whistler, Cougar Mountain, Ancient Cedars, British Columbia, Canada 04

Description : The Ancient Cedars are a stand of some dozen old growth trees. They are breathtakingly beautiful. This area was logged in the late 1800s and these amazing giants were preserved; they reach some 61 metres (200 feet) high and the largest, considered to be about 1,300 years old, would take about six men to join hands and reach around its circumference. Trees of this size are unusual at this elevation - about 1,066 metres (3,500 feet).

It is like walking into an Emily Carr canvas as soft sunlight filters through the dense trees with huge trunks weathered a soft grey and foliage of the deepest greens. As we pause for a snack, everyone is strangely quiet, an acknowledgment that we are in the presence of something very special.
