Nature time this week included a Enos Lake hike in Nanoose on Vancouver Island. Easy to access the trail and the hike to the lake is around 30 minutes.
The trail is downhill to the lake and is in good shape. Not many people were present which was a real bonus for enjoying the quiet nature.
We took the wrong turn on the trail and ended up by a large beaver pond that was buzzing with insects!
There were lots of the Common whitetail dragonflies flying around. They are amazing fliers and fun to watch. During the heat of the day we were lucky the mosquitoes were scarce!
Lots of frogs were croaking as well. They would probably love to hang out on these lily pads.
We found the right path to the lake. It is a bit more challenging with lots of exposed roots from the large Douglas Fir and Red Cedar trees. It’s all downhill to the lake from here!
I really love the nature in these deep woods ravines. Lots of big trees and knarley landscapes. We see glimpses of the lake below now.
A beautiful lake in nature is uplifting and spiritual.
Go play outside!
