Shore Pine Bog is a unique environment among the lush, primeval rain forest of British Colombia. Where other forest areas present enormous, ancient pine and cedar, the Bog presents short, stunted pine trees thigh they're just as old.
The soil, highly acidic, kills most vegetation. That which does survive is crippled and twisted. With a-nutrituous earth, few branches grow at all, and those that do, the winds and the rain distort them into strange shapes.
Thus the colloquial name: The Bonsai Forest. This was easily my favorite park visited.
