On Pacific Rim Highway 4
In this episode, Charles recounts a particularly memorable family road trip over storied Sutton Pass. Nowadays, the drive on Highway 4 is a scenic adventure on your way to the coast; winding by the Kennedy River, over the mountain pass and through towering old-growth forests is a stunning journey. But when Charles was young, the road between Port Alberni to Tofino was a newly built forestry route, meaning it was unpaved and full of logging trucks!
Take a ride with Charles as he tells of the harrowing experience one could expect to have on your way to the iconic Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, just a few decades ago. You may even relish today’s drive a little more after.
