Rain Forest Loop – Pacific Rim National Park

All photos taken on October 13, 2022.

After handing the E-bikes back to B & K, we wandered Long Beach a bit more, before driving South to the Rain Forest Loop alongside the Pacific Rim Highway. There are 2 of these loops opposite each other. We chose the West one, as that was the side of the highway we were driving on.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. There were a lot of stairs, not too steep going down, but steeper going up. Perhaps we went the wrong direction. That has to be a real chore adding stairs while trying to preserve the forest. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


  1. A decent loop Allan, I have always loved boardwalk trails. Maybe it’s simply the sound of the wood beneath one’s feet. And a separation between you and the wild if that makes any sense. Looks like there were a few killer staircases along the way.

  2. Wow, what a magical rainforest trail which it lets you explore the rhythms of the ancient wilderness and admire the towering trees and thick foliage that the park has to offer. I would love to sit and be humbled by these magnificent giants and rich undergrowth forever. I like how there are signs that provide hikers with information on the trail’s wildlife as well as the park’s plants and trees. Thanks for sharing and have a great day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. It was a great initiation for those who could not do the more strenuous hikes and we enjoyed it, after having done our Meares Island hike. The explanation signs were indeed a benefit and we found ourselves slowing down a bit to see if we could spot the plants they were talking about. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
