Prospect Point Battle Scars

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

We went for a 3 hour walk in Stanley Park today. We’re no strangers to the park and its winding trails. We’ve taken tons of pics during the summer, walked through in the rain, done a video podcast after the storms in December and today was just to get another look. More trails were open than they were 3 months ago but the devastation is none the less jaw dropping. Not only can you smell and hear the ocean when you’re on the Rawlings trail but you can now see it through the clearcutted passages left on the hillside by the Christmas wind storms. We took some pictures right after the annihilation so we tried to take a few more, kind of a before and after – just to see how much work and restoration is going on in the park given the millions of dollars people have poured into the cause. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves *Note, these were all taken with my camera phone.

Stanley Park Trek
Parking lot of the baseball diamond. Any tree that doesn’t get hacked up and tossed back into the woods to become one with nature again gets piled up here.

I ran up to this fallen tree shouting “I want to go see how old it is!” As I approached I could see someone beat me to it, the rings were counted and a big “400+ Years Old” was written in pencil.

I fell shortly after this last one was taken. Chicks dig scars.

Video shot with camera phone, optimal for video podcast size, not really You Tube so quality is a lil sketchy.
