July 14, 2014


    Hortstman Glacier looks to be melting quickly this year.

    South side of Blackcomb is looking pretty dry.


    Sunrise on Finn Island, sharp turn for the tankers if they go to Kitimat. Whales every where!!!

    Harper recently took away Humpback protection so he can ram his project down our throats.

    There were sleeping wales in Squally Channel, saw at least 14 where the tankers would come in.


   After spending 6 days in the area I have to agree, there is too much at stake to allow this to happen.

                             We should always listen to the locals.

    The West Coast is a difficult place to find great campsites during the full moon.

For the forecast, the high pressure will continue to bring nice weather to the Whistler area. Ridge should weaken by Thursday evening allowing some cloud to move into the region as a weak upper trough builds into the area. There is a possibility of some precipitation but only time will tell. I am sure the forest could use some moisture. Amazing weather up here on the North coast!!
