|Langdale Trail – easy & level hike|
The trees here are fairly young…new growth I’m sure after logging. These are skinny, fast growing trees…maybe alder. Almost all deciduous…the mighty Douglas fir and yellow cedar are further up the mountain. Looking straight up at the sky the leaves rustled in the slight breeze. The walk was very peaceful with birds singing and enjoying the sunshine.
|Salmon berries are ready to eat|
The trail is lined with what I believe are salmon berries. They are orange and turn red when ripe. A delicious snack along the way.
Ten days from now this trail will be the end of stage 5 of the BC Bike Race. 500 riders from around the world will fly down the trail descending from much higher on Mt. Elphinstone as they race to the finish line at the ferry terminal below. I look forward to cheering them on.
