Photo: Natural Scenic Rainforest Foliage River

In this scenic image of a natural rainforest, the foliage of moss and plants growing beside the river can be clearly seen due to all the vibrant colours. This stream supplies the natural hot mineral water to Hot Springs Cove on Vancouver Island.

Maquinna Marine Provincial Park features a scenic rainforest with bright green foliage and moss with a river which supplies the natural hot mineral water to the rocky pools at Hot Springs Cove on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia. The moss covered rocks and tree roots located beside the river are constantly wet from the steam created by the hot water promoting the growth of the vibrant green moss. It needs damp and shady conditions to survive and the bank of the stream leading to Hot Springs Cove is a perfect place for this moss to grow.

This river which leads to the Hot Springs Cove in the scenic Openit Peninsula in Maquinna Marine Provincial Park comes from deep within the earth and bubbles up to the surface like a natural hot bath. ... continue below the picture...

... The water is cooled however by the Pacific Ocean and as the water filters down through the natural rock pools each one is slightly cooler than the one below it.

Some visitors to the Hot Springs think that the water has healing properties and will come to sit in the pools to benefit from the steam and condition of the water that they know is all natural. To reach the hot springs visitors take a boardwalk trail through the rainforest of the park, surrounded by vivid green foliage.
