"Walk into The Rainforest and sense time. Trees that are centuries old soar three hundred feet high, their trunks like pillars in a nave and the light beneath them like that filtered through cathedral glass." - Ruth Kirk, What is the Rain Forest

Old man's beard hangs from an old cedar

Gulls feast on salmon eggs

Looking up the river

Traversing the estuary's edge

Sept 19, 2007 (All Day) - Traipsing up the Kynoch

Ghastly vestiges of salmon lie along shore after spawning

A whole new meaning to "Freeganism"

Dead salmon point upstream towards the spawning grounds

Any last words?

Nutrients from salmon have been found in the treetops of Great Bear showing how much the health and vitality of this region depends on the salmon runs.

Sept 19, 2007 (All Day) - Fishing like a Pro on Kynoch

I saw a man on National Geographic catch a salmon with his bare hands during a salmon run. It was one of my wishes to do the same...Moments later...

HOLY COW! The one-handed tail grab!

I was obviously excited. Even the Bears were impressed.


Rob prefers the fishing hook

But he caught this rocking ratfish with mesmerizing emerald eyes. The Kitasoo (xai'Xais) First Nation have some wonderful oral histories about this guy.
