Risso’s VI

Open Skies

From The Road

I have been working on Quadra Island the past few weeks.

This is a common sight along logging roads.

Normally one is driving past these young forests and tree trunks flicker as they blur past.

This out of focus view sort of captures the effect.

I did take video, and when home will work some of that up and post it too.

I am driving south today, so tomorrow will be back to the home routine.

SGang Gwaay VI

Another shot taken while travelling on the Passing Cloud at the UNESCO World Heritage Site SGang Gwaay located on the south west side of Gwaii Haanas.

The nearest heavily eroded poles were burned in a fire in the 1800s.

There are various stories, but the one that I hear the most is that it was a revenge fire set by Ditidaht sealers aboard schooners heading south from hunting fur seals in the Pribilof Islands area.

I have written a long post about the fur seal schooners at this link.

If you want to know more about SGang Gwaay I have written about it in several posts (link) from previous visits.

Hotsprings Island

 

2016-olymjuii-009-11

While travelling on the Passing Cloud we made a couple of visits to Hotsprings Island.

The hotsprings were turned off by an earthquake a few years ago, but in the last year have started to flow again.

Unfortunately, they are now in spots away from the established infrastructure of pools and bathing houses.

Even so, the view is to die for so it is still worth a visit.
