Helliwell Love Letter

As if the entrance to the bluffs at Helliwell were not enough spectacular enough, there are these giant Arbutus trees that conjure images of the swirling brushstrokes from Emily Carr paintings.  In the three years I have lived here I have lost track of the number of times I have hiked these bluffs.  Their beauty is so powerful though I think I could come everyday for the rest of my life and find another layer of expansion and a deeper connection to nature.  I am so grateful to John Helliwell who had the foresight and the love to share this land with everyone, including me.  Sometimes the only way to say thanks is with a deep breath of fresh air and a smile.
