Out of time

Site of an ancient tragedy...

In a valley beside a road on Salt Spring Island, my wife and I came across this car wreck several years ago.

At first I was puzzled by the fact that it was surrounded by a forest of mature trees. There was no way that a car could have slid off the road and down the hill to this point.

Then we saw the front fenders on the car, giving a hint as to how old this car really was. So old that it was likely on of the first cars ever on Salt Spring Island. Over the decades that it has rested here, an entire forest has filled in around it.
