Near the top of unnamed falls on Myers Creek in Spipiyus Provincial Park.

Hiker pauses at the top of creek before it plunges into the abyss hundreds of meters below.
Dozens of small, shallow, fast-moving streams rush through the oldgrowth at spring thaw.
Dozens of spring streams, like capillaries nourish rich moss beds.
Contrary to popular belief, most trees do not fall over when they die (unless of course they are cut down). This tree just disintegrated, forming a mossy compost heap where new growth will naturally regenerate in a process occuring over thousands of years.

Photographic ecstasy awaits the hiker in the Caren Range's never-ending
natural masterpiece. Only a tiny piece of the original oldgrowth
forest was saved, but what a treasure thanks to the many volunteers and
supporters who helped create Spipiyus Provincial Park.
