The Island Highway #19 between Nanaimo and Parksville is best traveled when listening to 90's rock. Throw in a little Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins and you have yourself a time machine. The road is a long stretch of asphalt dotted with cheap motels, RV trailers and bizarre places to get your hair cut. Fill up at the Husky gas station and take a ride – sexy mud flaps optional. Here are a few photos I snapped along the way.
