Well.. I'm out of Port McNeill finally, but not off the rock... living in Nanaimo now!

Haven't posted in awhile.. got so many hikes and adventures to share... here's some pictures from 'Ammonite Falls' - wicked little hike, steep steep steep... the picture of the falls doesn't do it justice, they're at least 100 feet high.

second fall (beautiful, and a *treacherous* climb up from here, be careful!)

tons of salamanders in the wet rocks... cool!

I'd go back exploring in a heartbeat. Fantastic trails, and a breathtaking canyon... lots of creek crossing, sketchy climbs and good pools to swim in during the summer!

Check out my friends website for details: http://www.nanaimoinformation.com/ammonite-falls.php

there's a bit of a sketched map on there, often people plan hikes on the forums there too ;)


thanks for all the comments! Maybe I'll enter that one for a pic o' the month.
