Hiking around old growth cedars

Hiking around in the Kokanee Glacier park, we first climbed up a rough wash-boarded logging road, where 4-wheel drive is recommended.  We had to go extremely slow as a result of having a low front-wheel-drive hatchback.  5 km up the logging road, there is a little parking area to hike around in old growth cedar forest.  It was very serene and beautiful.  It felt a little like being in northern California (but to be honest, the Muir Woods monument is still the most peaceful “temple” of nature I have ever been in).  With that said, we encountered several trees that were between 500 and 800 years old and the one oldest tree is 850 years old.  There were great signs explaining everything about the old growth forest – animals, riparian areas, trees, insects, etc.  Everything was very well marked!  Someone is doing an incredible job of trail maintenance and education up there.
