SGang Gwaay VI

IMG_8928

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.

Once again I am in the field, though not so far afield as the trip to Haida Gwaii.

Consequently I may be a bit slow responding to comments, but please leave them if you have thoughts about any of my photos.
