This is a sunset of BC mainland mountains from a hidden plateau in Courtenay. 99% of residents do not know where this is. Yet this vantage point is well within Courtenay boundaries and it provides views all around including farmlands and the Beaufort Mountains behind us. Crown Isle on Ryan Road may become passe when this place is discovered by the locals. So far there are only three houses up here. Macelhaney surveyed 32 lots so far they tell me. A home for Aisian Pheasants. Those pretty multi-coloured birds, so hard to photograph at times.
