Queen Charlotte Islands kayaking

The view from the window of my $25 / night room in Charlotte City looks much like this.

There is a lot of snow too, unusual round here. Kind of a Snow Falling on Cedars look and feel to the landscape.

This has been the best and most unique stop over the past 2 weeks flying around on my Air Canada Pass. (I’m not the only tourist to arrive this winter simply because Sandspit, Haida Gwaii, is one of the destinations included.)

Spoke with Tourist Information this afternoon. As expected, the agent recommended a summer kayak trip being dropped by plane or boat close to the south tip of the islands. And paddling back through the National Park over 5-6 days.

Bill Wallace and the Saskatoon crew have been talking about that for years. (… Perhaps when the rest of you retire, we can get this together.)

: )

UPDATE: Joan says we are GOING in the summer of 2009. No excuses.
