Moss Covered Trees, Golden Ears Provincial Park

Moss covered trees, part 2

Golden Ears Provincial Park lies about 50 km east of Vancouver, British Columbia and about 10 km north of the town of Maple Ridge. The park, one of the larger provincial parks covers 625 hectare. Originally part of Garibaldi Provincial Park, which was created in 1927, Golden Ears Park became a separate entity in 1967. The main road, the Golden Ears Parkway, runs north from the entrance at the south end of the park through the South Beach picnic area and boat launch on Alouette Lake.

About half way to South Beach the road cuts through an area of decaying trees and ferns. The dead tress are covered in moss and lichens, creating a scene that could come from a horror movies, creepy and scary. The photos in this album were taken in this area.
