British Columbia is one of Jerry's favorite places in the world having spent time there when he was in the Air Force and so we often drove north to vacation; in fact at one time we considered migrating to British Columbia. He more than me but we (me more than he) decided to remain in northern California. The brochure, saved from that trip shows its picturesque majesty. Digging out these photos gave us a chance to reminisce about that trip for just the two of us and the days we spent there that week there on our way to Prince George. I Googled and learned that Klahanie is still operating, today, year round. In fact today it is a prime base camp for those venturesome folks who wish to climb the Chief, North America's largest granite monolith on any of its more than 300 trails.

|This is The Chief that granite monolith which we did not climb|
It is just around from Shannon Falls.
The three peaks comprise what is called the masiff.
I understand that Howe Sound is a magnificent view from atop.
