    Few miles W of Canoe Creek Village facing S towards Fraser. The year before there was a large grizzly hiding by the boulder. We initially thought it was a large bull. It ran to the tree before stopping . When it stood up one could still see its huge dagger like claws.

    About a mile W of Canoe Creek- This landform always puzzles me Ėmade by nature orďotherwise???

    Thanks for the photos!
    I also was taken by that strange yet awesome country.
    I think all young boys should spend a couple weeks there wandering on horseback and doing things that boys do. I think it would be most beneficial.

    Love that country, just wish there wasn't so much horse shit where we went!
    I like drinking beer and whiskey, shooting guns, jetboating, love a nice rack and a tight line, I am simply a sophisticated redneck...

    Thanks for sharing pics Mpotzold!

    The last pic-so my Dad always tells me when we nip over it heading for Empire Valley-is a terminal moraine! I've never been or hunted the West side of Churn Creek before; perhaps next season!
