Walking the Beach at Sagar Lake

The beach was an amazing orange colour - I was surprised there was so much sand for an inland lake.

Log Sorting Yard

Once the logs were unloaded from the trucks, they would be brought down here, sorted
and then floated out into the log boom area to be towed to market.

Climbing a Rope

This trail is one of the most damaged I've ever hiked. The soil over the
rock is thin and easily washes away once the vegetation has be trampled. Anything vertical
(that used to be covered with tree roots) is now exposed (slipery) rock.

Landing for Trail to Sagar Lake

This is the beach head where you begin the hike to Sagar Lake.  The sign
says that this is a wilderness site and all garbage much be packed out.

Link Lake Dam at Ocean Falls

This massive dam used to provide power for the pulpmill and town at Ocean Falls. There are
log floats to keep the logs from going over the dam. I wonder how much the wood is worth today.

BC Archives has a photo from roughly the same place

Accommodation in Shearwater

These mobile homes are part of the hotel in Shearwater.  If you come
for a fishing trip, you probably stay here.
