Jun 27, 2011 - Port Renfrew & Umgebung - Vancouver Island

Nachdem wir -wie bereits in den vergangenen 3 Wochen- unsre Ausfluege nach den vorausgesagten Regenpausen planten, hatten wir diesmal auch Glueck und erkundeten die landschaftlich schoene Gegend im Suedwesten Vancouver Islands. Wenn man bedenkt, dass Vancouver Island die 1 1/2 fache Groesse der Schweiz hat, und nur wenige Strassen aufweist, versteht man die urspruengliche, beinahe menschenleere natur besser. Der Grossteil Vancouver Islands bleibt unerschlossen oder ist nur nach tagelangen Kanufahrten erreichbar, ein wahres...

The road to Port Renfrew from Victoria or highway 14 is known appropriately as the Coast Highway and is a distance of about 65 miles. Though not terribly far by most standards this is a slow windy two laner that in several places crosses one lane bridges. It is a combination of very scenic views of the Juan de Fuca Strait with the mountains of Washington's Olympic peninsula...
