Previous Walking In Giant Ferns
25 of 54 from Winter Harbour To Brooks Peninsula

Tsuga heterophylla (western hemlock), Polystichum munitum (Western Swordfern)

The Hemlock is the large tree with the wide roots. That's a bit strange for our trees - I believe this tree started on a nurse log which has since rotted away. The sword fern is ground cover here.
