On Vancouver Island a soaked beach reflects a contemplative evening ride. At 12,079 square miles (31,285 square kilometers), Vancouver Island is the largest island on North America's Pacific Coast. Separated from mainland Canada by several straits, the island is actually the peak of a sunken mountain range.
