We're back from our adventure and back to work today. This scene that I wondered into while on a pit stop at a logging camp looking for a toilet really stuck with me. The loggers hadn't arrived to camp yet due to a delayed ice break on a nearby river. No one in sight except for one lone friendly cook. He was all to happy to put on his apron and make a warm meal for us. As I pictured him mounting that note I thought about how important his job actually is. Northern BC is truly humbling.
Woke up to a thick fog this morning which to us marked the end of our journey. We still have some road to do. Hopefully we'll see a few more bears, mountain views, historical/cultural landmarks and roadside oddities. Feeling light and humbled.
Tonight we spend the night in Stewart, BC. Home of the Bear Glacier pictured here and the Salmon Glacier on the Alaska side. We tried to access the Salmon Glacier but had to turn back due to a rock slide. We actually left our truck and attempted to hike to it but after a couple kms the snow became too deep and bear tracks too common...
Crafty little beavers built this mighty dam. The water level on the other side is about 3' higher. We took a hike around Boya lake. At some point the forest started to look as if a hurricane had past through it. Fallen trees everywhere, the trail was flooded... We soon realized it was the work of beavers!
The Grand Canyon of Stikine. What I couldn't capture are the lava fields that we drove across with steep dropoffs at every bend. I was too busy holding on to the dashboard trying to manage my dready thoughts to take photos... 🐔
