We went to Mesachie Lake, where the turn off for the road we took which was the Harris Creek road. We took a look a giant Sitka Spruce tree, named the Harris Creek Sitka Spruce Tree.
We were able to see three Roosevelt Elk along this stretch, as well as two huge black bear. This was a rare sighting as many of these animals are quite elusive. Please also take a few moments to look at the Regions of BC forum as well, as this will go over some wilderness tips of what you should do in areas of wilderness and the parks.
The next morning we were supposed to go the VIA train from Victoria to Courtenay, unfortunately the train was broken down, so we were not able to see that route, but hopefully we will be able to do. We however, were able to see a few more deer along the way.
Please keep posted for further trips that we take!
