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.

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

Logging Site on Doc Creek

This looks like it is still an active logging site.

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.

Alexander MacKenzie from Dean Channel

This is the view from the Zodiak as we pull around to Elcho Harbour where the
Curve of Time is parked (we couldn't anchor).  The beach (about the middle of the frame)
is where we pulled the Zodiak in and where the Petroglyph is.  The marker is on the hill
and the carving is in the rock bluff on the right.

Alex MacKenzie From Canada by Land 22d July 1793 This is as far west as Alexander Mackenzie made it on his trip across Canada. He didn't actually carve this - that was done by surveyers later.

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.

Entrance to Codville Lagoon

Codville Lagoon is a sheltered lagoon on the Eastern side of the Fisher Channel.

Cabin at End of Cascade Inlet

This cabin is probably a hunting cabin. It's in really good shape. There is a bear in this scene - can you find it?
