About this product
- DescriptionPortrait of the Pacific Rim is a photographic tour of the awe-inspiring sights and activities on the far edge of Canada. The wild, raw beauty of the Pacific Rim is captured in dozens of colour photographs, as accomplished photographers Ole Hoyer and Wendy Swdon share some of the gorgeous sights the west coast offers. Pacific Rim National Park reserve, comprised of Long Beach, the Broken Group Islands and the West Coast Trail, is an unparalleled gem. Scraped out of the western edge of Vancouver Island, the landscape ranges from primordial rainforests to acres of sandy beaches, rugged bluffs and sw-capped mountains. Driving there is half the fun, as you travel the Pacific Rim Highway through the forest and along the lakeshores of many provincial parks. See the village of Coombs and its famous market with the goats on its roof, then pass through unforgettable Cathedral Grove. The Pacific Rim is where people come to enjoy outdoor activities such as surfing, hiking, camping, fishing, wildlife watching and kayaking. Take home a tour of Long Beach, the tourist and surf towns of Ucluelet and Tofi, and the quiet cabins along the coast, plus the challenging grind of the moss-covered and often rainy West Coast Trail itself.
