Kinsol Trestle

Months ago, I had the pleasure to explore the Kinsol Trestle near Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island and what an awe-inspiring sight! The Kinsol Trestle is apart of the Trans Canada Trail, a coast-to-coast recreational trail that winds through 1,000 communities across Canada.

The historic trestle became a revitalization project of an old railway bridge which was completed in 2011 and is one of the tallest free-standing timbre rail trestle structures in the world.  Nestled in the BC forest, this spectacular bridge gave me the inspiration to illustrate the unique details of such an amazing human creation.
