    Fortunate to do some shift work over on this little island with cool logging history. Takes 3 ferrys and alot of KMs to get to here from the mainland and it's worth every minute of the 10 hour travel. Staying at a small hotel right outside Kw'as 'park' as it's called. I'll try to get some daily pictures. Woke up to some serious downpours today should be fun.

    I can only imagine how wild it must be weather wise there right now..... it's insane here on the Mainland Coast - severe rain,sunshine, 18-20 deg C , blown out creeks / streams.

    one creek I normally walk across and just get my soles wet, is waist deep with raging fast snowpack melt & heavy rain :eek:

    Slightly wet. I've been making shelters in the vaults with tarps and deliniator road cones like a little fox hole

    More random shots from the work day. I have tons of bush pictures but it takes extremely long to upload each one so I'll just keep the trip reports for when I'm back 20220604_090443.jpg

    Strolled into kw'as "park" heading towards the old logging area to find some remaining old growths/second growths and the 1920s steam donkey that blew up leaving them behind. Made it to a nice summit above Hague lake as the sun was falling and the wolves came out and started talking to me. Was super cool how fast they responded when I howled at them. Found lots of cool old spring board notched tree stumps andbfinally the old steam donkey with the remaining log jam still sitting in the lake not far 20220601_175722.jpg 20220601_180400.jpg 20220601_180503.jpg 20220601_180721.jpg 20220601_180857.jpg 20220601_181046.jpg 20220601_181110.jpg 20220601_181152.jpg 20220601_181829.jpg 20220601_181916.jpg 20220601_183412.jpg 20220601_182826.jpg 20220601_183853.jpg 20220601_184302.jpg 20220601_183950.jpg 20220601_184525.jpg 20220601_185149.jpg 20220601_185303.jpg 20220601_185414.jpg 20220601_185417.jpg

    Made friends with the local panther, and checked out some of the cool builds people are working on and took a drive to the other general store on the other side of the island. Takes maybe an hour to drive the loop around the whole thing 20220607_064444.jpg 20220607_064454.jpg 20220607_105602.jpg 20220607_111044.jpg 20220607_111050.jpg 20220607_152019.jpg 20220607_152024.jpg
