British Columbia is one of those places that humbles you. 
From the breathtaking temperate rainforests, sky high mountains,
powerful ocean, and all the wildlife—it reminds you of the beauty in life. 
 There is something magical about watching a killer whale slice through the waves of the ocean,
or relaxing in a natural hot spring.  These are only a few of the things that I have been so fortunate to experience on this trip,
and moments I will never forget.  I was also moved when learning about the first nation people,
as well as the conservation issues concerning parts of British Columbia. 
Once again I’ve been inspired to work harder to learn more about issues such as salmon farming and logging,
so that I can find ways to either help these issues directly or indirectly by sharing them with others. 
 I believe it is important to be aware of these issues in order to better our Earth, as we all should want to—
we should recognize something deeper in the Earth, feel that it is alive, and help to keep it that way.
