Vancouver Island, Canada is a perfect summer destination. Just a short airline hop from Seattle or a quick ferry trip from Vancouver city, Canada, this large island offers endless diversity and sights to see. Many visitors coming from northern Washington state never get beyond the Victoria area but there is so much more here, beyond the city. There are 2 national parks and 14 provincial parks on this huge island. I suggest bringing your own car (or better yet a 4x4 truck) and taking at least a week to explore Vancouver Island. For photographers, Vancouver Island has it all - snowcapped scenic mountains, alpine lakes reflecting those peaks, tons of charismatic wildlife including Grizzly Bears, Bald Eagles and Whales, excellent waterfalls, rain forests, beaches with rugged coastline and on and on. The logistics of making a trip to Vancouver Island are easy enough with plenty of towns offering all services and tons of camping spots for the more adventurous. If you've been to the island and have a favorite photo spot, email me and we can compare notes.
This little waterfall is called "Hole in the Wall" and is one of my favorite hidden gems of Vancouver Island. It can be found along Rogers Creek in Port Alberni. Take an easy 20 minute hike to get to it and try to be there on a cloudy day for lower contrast in your photos.
