Photo Of The Day: Hidden Rock Wall

Photo of the Day

This Photo of the Day comes from Gadling Flickr pool member James Wheeler who captured the image using a Nikon D5000. The image is titled “Hidden Rock Wall.”

James add this caption to the image: “These days, the mountains to the North of Vancouver are mainly used for hiking and recreation but these mountains have a long history of logging. There are many remnants of the old days of logging, not just stumps of the massive trees that used to line British Columbia’s coast but also rubble from the buildings used during the logging.

I noticed this rubble of an old building overgrown while doing the brothers creek hike just north of West Vancouver.”

“Vancouver and the west coast of Canada are known for their rainy winters. So, even though the coastal mountains are snow covered most of the year, us Vancouverites rarely see them because of the clouds and rain. I got this photo one morning when it was actually clear out for a while …”
