One of the many short trails in the vicinity of the Pacific Rim National Park, Tonquin Trail leads right out of the east side of the town of Tofino.
Tall trees tower over the power lines at the beginning of the trail. There are lots of tree skeletons on the trail.
Early evening light casts an unreal coloration on this dead tree. Fallen log with next to a Salal berry bush.

Even though the trail was only 2.6 km roundtrip I didn’t hang around for the sunset. At this point I realized I should have packed in a flashlight – once the sun was down there was absolutely no light and the trail was overgrown and twisty.The sunset back in Tofino.
