Vancouver series 2011

I always thought of the Canadians as much more environmentally aware than us Americans. That was until I traveled up many miles of gravel roads on Vancouver Island. Heading out to the west coast around Bamfield, the amount of clear cutting was staggering. Yet when I reached the beaches with their monstrous driftwood of ancient trees and the tall spruce that have been left to stand by the tribe that owns that land, I was left believing a dinosaur will appear any minute. Over and over again I realize that anywhere I go on this planet, people and cultures have been there long before me and have been reshaping the land to their needs for a very long time.
