The Great Trail


Ghosts of steam engines
Echo across our great land
Lost in mists of time


Week 08 - The Great TrailWeek 08 - The Great Trail


“The Great Trail” was made on Vancouver Island, near Shawnigan Lake, when I went there for a visit in 2014.  This trestle was slated for demolition, but the local community stepped in and raised enough money to restore it and then make it part of the Great Trail.  I remember this morning as being a quiet winter’s morning with the fog slowly rising from the river below and the sun trying to burn through it.  I think what appeals to me in the great sweeping arc appearing out of the mist.
