THESE PICTURES GO WITH THE FOLLOWING POST

Johnstone Strait and the Broughton Archipelago from the end of Kaikash logging road

Overlooking Ida Lake out to the coast, we are parked at the right end of the lake

Zoomed in with the 400 mm lens then cropped tightly in Photoshop, that's our motor home in our spot.  The white tarp to the right is John and Anne's site.  The Kokish River is flowing out of Ida Lake to the left

A long shot with the 400 mm lens showing Alert Bay which is on Cormorant Island.  There is a large body of water not shown separating Alert Bay from Vancouver Island.  The foreshortening effect of the telephoto minimizes the separation. In this shot, Alert Bay is nearly twenty kms from where I took the shot

Up the mountain ATVing in the fog

Shaunee looks to be enjoying driving the ATV


The bunchberry is quick to re-establish after the forest is logged

Looking down on reforested land

Someone made a grill out of an old oil barrel and left it in one of the campsites.  The grandkids had a ball using their sidewalk chalk

While out walking one morning some of the group spotted this Red-breasted Sapsucker who was very obliging for photos
