Canadian Old Growth

In June I attended the biannual meeting of the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment in Victoria, British Columbia. This was a great excuse to visit some old-growth forests in Canada. Rick (Maloof) was able to travel with me and he took some great photographs (as usual). On the LONG bus ride to get to the forest we had a chance to visit with Simmons Buntin who has created an excellent electronic journal: Please check out this link to see his journal and our contribution to it.

As soon as the bus pulled out a groundhog ran across the wharf. There is so much life here!
