Muir Creek Logging


Timber West logging of second growth forests in the Muir Creek watershed. This logging is contentious at this time due to the CRD's interest in preserving the whole watershed as a park. The water you see along the bottom is where they have ignored falling boundaries and logged straight through a stream. Muir Creek is one of only three steelhead spawning grounds on the southwest corner of Vancouver Island. Logging co-ordinates: 48.40296, -123.86794


It was an extremely wet and windy day. Not ideal conditions for using a camera or going on a long hike.

This pretty much sums up the weather that day


Time to head for soup and hot chocolate.
