When we arrived at the trailhead of Botanical Beach, the area was completely fogged in. We hesitated a bit but we went ahead to walk the last part of the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail.
It was one of the densest coastal rainforests with 40-50m high cedar trees. We felt like we were in the deep Amazon jungle!
It seems that this part of the coast gets fogged in often and therefore the forest is verdant with moss. This trail had several beach access points and the beaches full of driftwoods in the mist were mystical and beautiful.
For this short 3km trail we spent almost 2 hours admiring the majestic forest and rugged rocky beaches.
After the walk, we had our lunch at a picnic table over the fogged bay view….
