Tees Kwat-

Today a friend and I hiked the Tees Kwat Trail to Gibson Beach. There were some spectactular views and quite a few trees blown down across the trail. This is a picture of one of them.

It was a wonderful sunny and warm day. When we got to Gibson's Beach, the ocean was very busy. We saw sea lions, seals, cormorants, ducks and lots of birds. I believe they were feeding at the tide line. We also saw the Sliammon Long Boat with a few people paddling it.

ALERT: Smokey's Blue Ridge Trail Closure

Western Forest Products is going to be commencing road construction in ST-245 on Tuesday October 12. It looks like the only portion of the SCT that will be affected is the portion above Goat Main at Mile 4 and this will be for tree falling. For safety, the SCT will need to be closed for some time next week in order to fall the trees along the exisiting road.

A 500 m reroute will have to be built. If you are interested in participating for a few hours contact Eagle at or call 604-483-9565. Thanks!
