Daniels Lake, BC

Kurt arrives in his Husky floatplane.
Last week we had a visitor to Hole in the Wall. Kurt arrived from the States in his Aviat Husky floatplane and stayed across from us in our good friend John's Cabin #2.

While Kurt was here, he took John for a ride up to Daniels Lake.

Daniels Lake is extremely difficult to reach by means other than floatplane or helicopter. This sub-alpine location placed the guys on crystal blue waters near year-round glaciers.

From here, the Daniels River plunges down granite cliffs through well worn gorges to merge with Powell River and ultimately feeds Powell Lake.

With Kurt as the pilot and John as the guide, they explored some really amazing country. -- Margy

  4. Wonderful place indeed when my husband worked on Hudson Bay, a friend used to take him to a number of remote locations. I think that is why he later learned to fly himself.
    A very beautiful post.
