Photographer's Note

A view looking north towards Pitt Lake, with the edge of the wetlands in the foreground. A dyke trail winds for several miles through the wetland area, most of which is to the right and nestles up against the Golden Ears mountains wilderness area. This is a key nesting and resting area for thousands of migratory birds flying to and from Alaska and Central and South America.

The wilderness to the north of Pitt Lake is one of the most treacherous in the world and is little explored. Over the course of the last century, more than 35 people have disappeared there, searching for the famous Slumach Lost Gold Mine of Pitt Lake. Quicksand, box canyons, mountain lions, grizzly and black bears abound.
