Kinsol Trestle

This morning on my way to Victoria and stuff on the Malahat going white I ended up at the Kinsol Trestle instead. It was a different scene from the one I saw a month ago:

Walking in from the Shawnigan Lake side takes a lot longer than from the Cowichan Station Riverside Rd parking lot. Here is looking at the trestle a month ago:

A different angle and view today:

The following pgotos are scenes from last month and the same scenery (kind of) today:

The foregoing is looking east from the trestle, the following photos make you look westward in a roundabout way. First last month’s view:

and here is today’s view:

I have never been at the trestle with the sun shining, but there are a million images on the internet of Kinsol Trestle basking in sun. I must admit, like a month ago, I wasn’t there very long the weather being just horrible. Nevertheless the place is visually stimulating and the air invigorating at any time. Haven’t been as wet as I was today for years though.


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

    I really must go there. I was watching the web cam this year while they were fixing the trestle, fascinating to see the progress. Thanks for the great photos – I like the one of the trestle with the people sitting on the rail having their picture taken – gives me a frisson of anxiety that they might fall.

    • It is definitely a great place, both for its views and for the nice hiking possibilities. I like to see the new timbers weather so that they blend in nicer, but am sure that will not take long.
