Faces in the Trees….

October 12, 2015

You ever see a movie where someone says “Don’t go in dem dere woods….Ghosts in dem trees,” or something of the like?  After a lovely show at the Elephant Ear Bistro in Terrace, BC, I was approached by a few people who had suggestions for cool places to walk.

One of the suggestions was Ferry Island, and the suggestion was followed up by, “There are faces in the trees.  At least 50 of them!”

This obviously perked my interest, and a good chap, Terry from Terrace, offered to take there and show me around.

Conclusion – she wasn’t lying…check out the photos below.  There are a lot more than just faces in dem woods too!  Highly suggest seeing the rest of them for yourself.  You really gotta watch.  I would have to say that this has been one of my favourite walks in Canada to date!!

So there I am, on an early plane to Terrace on Friday morning.  Weather reports had made mention that the hurricane was working it’s way up the pacific coast and epic amounts of wind and rain were forecasted….perfect time to be FLYING!!

Being somewhat on edge about this, I laid keen eye on the sky from my window seat.  I absolutely love the view being above the clouds, and decided to pull out my phone to take a photograph…….and see below for what happened……..


The only logical thing that came to my mind in that moment was “Oh okay, we must be going through the Great Northern Vortex.  Everything is totally cool…..”  Then I thought, “What daaaaaaaa?”

I put my phone down to look with my own eyes, and it looked normal.  Camera goes up – ULTIMATE WEIRDNESS!!!  I thought to myself “I’m either going nutso, or these plane pretzels I just ate must be far beyond their expiry.”

Naturally I felt that if I could capture this on video, then I could have better dialogues with others with evidence.  So here we are:

Thoughts?  Feelings?  Happy to hear them.  The flight attendant then proceeds to tell me….”I hope we land today…”  I HOPE we LAND TODAY!!”  Uhhhhhhhhhh….

Anyhow, my writing this is evidence I survived, or maybe it is because I went through the Vortex to Terrace and traveled to a new dimension.  Either way, we ended up landing about an hour before the storm really started rocking, so whatever happened worked for the positive :).
