British Columbia

British Columbia



From Capilano River Gorge, north of Vancouver. It's home to a famous swinging rope-and-plank suspension bridge, from which the last photo was taken.


Crossing the border on the White River & Yukon Railroad from Alaska to... the moon. Trees don't grow much above 3' tall here, and the entire plateau has a very eerie, lifeless look to it, even though much of the terrain is green. And yes, these are in British Columbia, not the moon.

From here, it's on up to the hammer waters, so named because of the sound of early invaders American and Canadian visitors hammering on their salmon traps. The Tlingit (they pronounce it Klinkit, and now so do you) word for hammer waters is Klondike. Eureka, a name! Eureka, a 5-carat gold nugget! I'll go buy an Internet startup now.
