CANADA ~ Pacific Rim National Park - Vancouver Island ~

...  Great view of one of Canada's newest National Parks... with magnificent islands, beaches and marine landscapes... each spring, thousands of people come to the Pacific Rim National Park hoping to see a glimpse of migrating grey whales heading up to their summer feeding grounds... since the whales often travel close to the shoreline, many park visitors spot the whales from the beach...
... Planning a visit to one of their amazing NP, Canada is offering everyone free access to all national parks in honor of its 150th Anniversary... all 47 national parks will have free admission this year for visitors (of any nationality) who enter with a Parks Canada Discovery Pass, available online ... Big Thanks Glenn!! ✿乂◕‿◕乂

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is a Canadian national park reserve in British Columbia on the southwestern coast of Vancouver. The park is comprised up of three different regions: the Broken Group Island, the West Coast Trail and the Long Beach. The Western part of this park is covered with the Pacific Ocean and the Eastern part is covered with Vancouver Island Ranges which are a part of the Insular Mountains. The entire park encompasses 511 km2 of land and ocean.

This park reserve is home to mammalian species of raccoon, black-tailed deer, cougar, wolf, black bear, marten, and mink. Visitors are often thrilled by views of various marine animals such as seals, porpoises, sea lions, and many species of whales that are frequent at this shoreline.
