It was a wonderful summer day to have a Parksville Wetlands walk.  A great place to enjoy many different species of plants, animals and fungi.

Great trails for dogs

A short distance to the trail head we passed through rolling meadows with hard hack blooming.  There is a gravel trail to walk on that changes into a soft forest path as you enter the main trail.  Also there is a sign so you know you are in the right place!

Over the railroad track and into the forest we go.  No trains are running on this track today but maybe one day the train will go by as it use to.

The Oceanspray was blooming and the white flowers were draped everywhere on the paths.  I felt like I was in a magic forest.  It was very enchanting.

Beautiful red columbine flowers were also in bloom.  They are vibrant red in color so they really stand out.

In conclusion, I am very thankful for all these day trails in the Parksville area.  Easily accessible and a great place to find peace and serenity.  Chill out time in nature is important to body, mind and soul.

Deep Forest Fractals Forest walk

A walk in the forest has inspired a few deep forest fractals.  I love the elements and textures of a well-evolved old growth forest.

There are lots of old red cedar stumps in the forest that are perfect for nature mandalas.  Many old trees that have been cut down are kept alive by other trees in the area.  Their roots are nurtured and provided with nutrients by other plant roots for still unknown purposes.

Moss mandalas and Deep Forest Fractals

Deep forest moss is everywhere in the forest especially during the moist winter months in the Pacific Northwest Canada.  Their soft and intricate textures make a lovely mandala as above.

Take the time to walk in your special nature paradise especially when you feel your energy is low and you need to recharge.   Equally important, being in the deep forest helps me to focus on what is important in my life.  The modern world contains too many distractions.  These distractions can complicate your life and can cause depression.  When we walk in the deep forest we are returning to a default world full of fresh air and good nature vibes!  Consequently – how can you not feel better for it! 🙂

Take a walkabout on the wild side in Ucluelet, Canada to see this Wild Pacific Trail cove.  Here there are many scenic spots to enjoy the power of nature at its best! The trail is not difficult to hike and you can walk smaller sections of it if you wish.
