Weekend trip in April

Went on a quick overnight trip with my son. Ended up on a logging spur road between Cayacuse and Port Renfrew.

Then on to Port Renfrew and back around to home. Snaps below, note: roads were steeper, and snow deeper than they appear in the pics 🙂
The big Sitka Spruce (Harris Creeks spruce, and Harris creek also shown in the rocky sided gorge pics, taken at different points on the creek) is bigger than it appears. Base of tree as wide as the Vanagon is long.
Hey you trendy modern free heel skiers, don’t laugh at my mismatched poles and 80’s vintage TUAs with those wimpy bindings.
Oh and one more thing, skeleton pic… we found this just off a logging road. Looks like 2 skeletons in that pic, a third was a few feet away. No legs or skulls.
Update: looking at skeletons again, I’m guessing Black Bear. Lack of feet and skull good clues too.

    Awesome blog. I’ve got a ’90 Multivan, but it’s not made this trip. Had to rely on a buddy’s ’74 which performed flawlessly (except for a starter failure in Port Townsend.) We hit Port Renfrew on spring break from ’82 to ’88. First visit to Wreck Bay (Tofino) was in a ’65 V-dub van, driven from Florida in 1970.
    Nice pictures.
