Walk with Giants


Grunts Grove (c) Dane Aleksander, 2014

Part of making the trip out West for SIGGRAPH 2014 in Vancouver was added the opportunity to visit grandparents, along with my cousin Sam, above near Grunts Grove, fresh off his first season tree-planting in BC. He invited me on an adventure through some of Canada’s most epic old growth and I said yes without hesitation. I maybe should have hesitated. All I had packed for footwear were Clarks and Birkenstocks. We managed to find our way safely to-and-from Paradise Pool and Heaven Grove in Carmanah Provincial Park, and back again. The Birks held up.
