We went exploring today. It was different. It was adventurous. It was fun.
The Upana Caves are a fairly easy trek. We took the kids and our German Shepard on this hike. Total time exploring and hiking was under an hour and a half. The main challenges were the darkness and the dog. For me, at 6 foot 8, crawling thru the caves met my muscles and joints with some pain after the fact.
I’m now a fan of this outdoor activity. I would do this again in a heartbeat. I’m excited to try this in other countries and see more beautiful formations and natural wonders. If you’re ever on Vancouver Island, with some time to spare, check out the Upana Caves.
British Columbia has some amazingly beautiful locations, preserved without vandalism and garbage. These caves were prestine. No one carved their names or painted words. I’m proud to live here, and love the respect given to our wonderful province and the beauty it holds.
