Sunny Spring at the Centre

It’s sunny & warm in the Comox Valley and also up at Paradise Meadows, though there is still lots of snow . The Wilderness Centre has survived another winter!

April at the Trailhead

April at the Trailhead

The Centre will likely be open earlier than usual this summer, for Park & trail information. Visitors are already stopping by to check for trail maps, although they will have to be snowshoeing for now, as it will be a while before the hiking trails are visible. The BC Parks parking lot at the trailhead is full of snow & gravel from the clearing of Mt Washington Resort parking lots, so visitors have to park at the Raven Lodge for now.

Buttle Lake Nature Trails

Photographer Ron Otsu has a new post on his Outdoor Solitude blog on the Buttle Lake nature trails here .

Spectacular photos as always! Interesting to see the lower water levels this spring – the low winter snow pack hasn’t yet melted in the mountains.
