Fishing on the Columbia today on the jet sled with my best friend. His family homesteaded here. Up from Bossburg on the Canadian border. Caught one walleye so far. River is high and mad. Boiling. Rained this morn its in the 50’s here.

Mt Baker set the world record of annual snow fall. 1140 inches in 98-99. Thats 95 feet or 28.95 meters!

So that would have been enough to build a snowman?  :bye:

Went out yesterday in one of my areas of interest. It has rained a fair amount lately including early yesterday morning when I entered the woods. The mosquitoes were swarming and nearly impossible not to be ravaged by them. 

 

The rain caused creeks and bogs to expand providing a good opportunity to look for prints. No luck but tomorrow is another day.

We went out to check out some recent Sasquatch sightings in an area about 3 hours away from us.  Planned on at least spending one night on location.  Pretty secluded area with a real weird and dark history.  
 

Spent less than 2 hours there before we got the heck out and just drove home.  I am going to have to figure out how we are going to properly approach this area in a safe manner.  My initial worry is the people who seem to be attracted to this area because of the history as opposed to anything Sasquatch related.  
 

Finding the remnants of a fire with pet carriers filled with excrement next to it in the middle of nowhere is always a good sign.

Always trust your instincts. Can you imagine backpacking in and getting those feelings in the middle of the night? That's a shame you had to drive all the way there.

 

Can you reach out to any of those who had a recent sighting in that area?

We are in touch with a couple of them.  
 

They all stressed the negatives of the area.

Great photos, langfordbc, thanks for posting them. Your job reminds me of a well known Glen Campbell song, and I bet you've heard that comparison a thousand times!

 

I've spent some time in NE BC, but not in the NW where you took these. Anywhere north of Prince George gets wild and lonely in a hurry, and goes on forever. I've followed sections of the cut line for the old 1880s telegraph line that was supposed to eventually reach Russia.

A small group of us went out Sunday

We were looking for a camping spot for our upcoming 1 week outing.

We also took a friend to the sight of our 2016 rock throwing incident.

 

That friend Jason Z. Currently has a go fund me going for his upcoming 60 day expedition

I have indeed - lol. The linemen on the telegraph line (which ran right through this area) were pretty rugged dudes. If I recall correctly from the book I read, they signed up for two year "shifts" and had roughly 20 miles of line to maintain each. Every day they would use their key to contact the adjacent linemen and if no contact was made, they would head in that direction to repair the break, or sometimes, find their colleague hurt or dead.
