I Can’t Shake the Feeling That I’m Being Watched…

While walking through the wooded pathways of Ferry Island (Terrace, BC) with my mother and children last month,  I couldn’t shake the eerie feeling that there was something or someone watching me.

It wasn’t a person.

It wasn’t an animal.

It was “The Spirits of the Forest”…

The often hidden, slightly mysterious Spirits of the Forest were carved on Cottonwood trees throughout the Ferry Island trailway. Not always obvious to hikers, the intricate and unique outdoor art of Terrace carver, Rick Goyette, reportedly  number upwards of 50 carvings. The 2.8 kilometer hike throughout old growth forest and along the banks of the mighty Skeena river is an easy hike for people with children, mobility impairments or just for a jaunty stroll. Part of the adventure is locating the carvings as you go.




My mother had a great time exploring the park with her granddaughters:

I call this one “Brian Mulrooney Before the Karl Heinz Schreiber Boondoggle”:

Dragons and spotted weiner dogs may have been involved in the excursion:
