A View of Little Qualicum River Through Moss-Covered Trees! (Set 2 of 2) (+6 insets)

A View of Little Qualicum River Through Moss-Covered Trees! (Set 2 of 2) (+6 insets)
(+6 insets!)

Trip Talk: Big Qualicum River, Qualicum River, Little Qualicum River…WHAT?!
When I put our itinerary together for this area of Vancouver Island, I knew that Little Qualicum Falls was a spot we must not miss. Wow, what an understatement…it was GORGEOUS! And with all of the fuss over Little Qualicum Falls, I expected to see lots of information about Big Qualicum Falls too. I do remember being a bit confused about the deal with Qualicum River while we were in the area and now I've finally figured it all out!

It turns out that the indigenous Qualicum people had two rivers named after them in that area--the Qualicum River and the Little Qualicum River. To make matters confusing, the Qualicum River is usually called the Big Qualicum River. The location of these two beautiful rivers is within 10 miles of each other. Little Qualicum originates from Cameron Lake and empties out into the ocean just north of Qualicum Beach at the southern end of Qualicum Bay. (Big) Qualicum River originates in the hills beyond Horne Lake, spills out the other side and empties out into the ocean at the north end of Qualicum Bay. To make this clear, I have included a topographical map inset which shows the two lakes and the paths leading to the ocean. It's nice to have this straight in my head! :)

Today's Pictures
I originally planned to show another magnificent view of Little Qualicum Falls as my main image. However, the image that gets first billing is a glimpse of the river through a quartet of glowing, moss-covered trees, surrounded by verdant greenery. It gives an very nice understanding of how rich and lovely it was in the forests of Vancouver Island.

The first inset is the image of Little Qualicum Falls dumping down into a log-wreathed pool in tones of teal and aqua. It was incredible to stand at the edge of the chasm and appreciate that awesome sight. It's also no wonder there is fencing erected all along this area…too many irresponsible selfie-junkies out there and they kept falling of the ledges!

The second inset shows a tree-accented view of the colorful water as we headed up to the falls. Inset three shows a log panorama covered with carefully-stacked prayer stones. At that particular spot there were piled prayer stones all over the ground, in small and big groups--they were everywhere! Unfortunately the many grey piles of stones blended together, so the pictures really weren't showing how cool they looked. Until I saw this rock-covered log! I knew it would be just right to show that spot and it turned out as I'd hoped!

My other insets include tree shadows on a pool of water and an abstract, blurry image of a fellow jumping off a ledge into a deep pool--his girlfriend had just jumped and though he was visibly nervous, he threw caution to the wind and followed suit. Neither of them were hurt but I couldn't stop thinking about my older brother who once jumped off a rope swing into a river and didn't realize the water level was too low…he broke his left femur and was in a cast for three months!

Pam, what is the health like of the forests where you live? Dry and ailing like ours? It's really incredible to visit a place where the forests are simply glowing with good health. We do have plenty of healthy forests here in southern Oregon--the ones that border rivers and streams are fine--but areas without a constant source of water are definitely not doing as well with the slow increase of heat over the years we've lived here. It didn't hit home until we spent a lot of time on Vancouver Island. Oddly enough--distressing to learn as well--the amount of moisture on Vancouver Island has decreased over the years as well. Lower rivers, less rain, more stress-related tree problems…even though it seems like their forests are in perfect shape, climate change has been affecting them too. We are happy that we've gotten to visit this place before the damage has become obvious. *sigh* Well, I hope that your day is going well…here it started off chilly with twinkling frost and bright sunshine and promises to warm up and continue to be fabulous and beautiful! *many HUGSSSSS and happy tidings!*

Wow what a superb place, Janet. I just love those moss covered trees and the view of the river behind it. The other pictures really show us what a fantastic place this is, and if I was able to walk and explore, it's exactly the sort of place I'd love to go to. The pictures are so beautiful.

Oh yes it is a wonderful region!! I know that, 2012 I took a trip from Parkville across the island... with the last drop of gasoline in my tank I reached the village of Ucluelet downhill and rolled to the gas station !!!!
Afterwards I continued my trip to Tofino. At that time there were still places which were not too crowded with tourists and also not so many hotels. Oh, they are wonderful memories. Also the flight with a small airplane over the sea to a tiny island, where a hitchhiker with his tent could be dropped off to stay there for a week in the wilderness.
There I saw a nest of the bald eagle very close

To quote Winnie-the-Poo "I am a bear of little brain"...........at least that's. how I felt after I read your Trip Talk................thank heaven's you provided a map in the PiP, otherwise I'd have given up..!!

Anyway..........I love your main image for all the reasons you gave us above. It's a magical place!

The images in the PiPs are just as good...........except for your abstract, which is not really my cup of tea..........but each to his (or her) own :-)

I'm amazed at clean and clear the water is. I particularly like the image in the fourth PiP of all the little piles of prayer stones.........I wonder if they were all done by the same person or do different people add them as they visit the area? I suppose we'll never know.

Cracking stuff as always Janet. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my photos........I always appreciate your visits :-)

We are home again! Arrived at about 5:00 am this morning as I've noted in my new post. Have the car unpacked, I got a couple hours of sleep and am now sitting with a cup of good coffee and my computer. Nice to be home and weary of traveling - well over 5000 miles. Had some car trouble again on the way home but limped in from Grand Canyon and now have to get the car in for service and some groceries in the house..

What a trip! We visited San Antonio and biked the mission trail - also walked the riverwalk. Spent most of week in Big Bend NP and hiked and kayaked there. Then went on to Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains and Lincoln National Forest, all in the same area. Spent one evening at White Sands National Monument and three days at Grand Canyon. Also stopped at Horseshoe Bend on the way home.

Could have spent twice as much time and want to go back again, but that will have to wait. Would go a month later, I think, if we ever went again. Thought about Arches and Canyonlands NP on the way home and were only 30 miles from Zion, but we were tired and the car was acting up a bit. Spent two of 18 nights on the road, 3 in motels or guesthouses and all the rest in our cosy little nest in the back of the car.

You've seen some of Nancy's photos. She's working outdoors because it's such a beautiful day here (near 60 tomorrow). She'll probably get around to posting something later today. She used mostly her phone and got some striking photos. Hope she does get around to posting them. Came home with a lot of rocks as well, too many in my humble opinion, but then I'm all about getting rid of stuff at the moment.

Your photos are marvelous! Appreciate the map and the fourth and fifth insets are nice, but the main photo and the first three insets are absolutely stunning. Love those moss covered trees and the falls/river are exquisite and exquisitely photographed. The shadows on the water and the color of the water are also superb. My favorite is the main photo, though barely. Love those moss-covered trees and they are superbly photographed.

Guess that's it for now. Have to make lunch - bacon and eggs that Jessica left to make sure we had something to eat. She also left soup for this evening.

That's a great series. The moss-covered trees look like trees in a fairy-tale forest. The cairns on the trunk look funny. The view into the gorge with its small waterfall is breathtaking. I like gorges very much.
