VIT scott & bennie with peak in bg comp
I'd just turned 50 when son Patrick took this of Ben and I. Two years earlier, I'd had a serious heart attack (as though there's 'not serious' ones?!!). At that time I had no idea I'd ever be able to return to a normal life, much less be able to do this hike. To have the opportunity to feast on this incredible beauty, and share it with my son and Ben, made for a very special day for me, one I will never forget. Afterwards, we joined the rest of the family in Port Alberni to celebrate my father in law's 85th birthday. So glad to be alive on Vancouver Island!
Best view on Vancouver Island? You'll have to hike it yourself to know, but if it's not, you can see it from here, I'm sure.
