    Twenty minutes on the highway and 25km of REALLY BAD logging road.
    I'm in here (Holmes River Valley) 10-20 times each autumn.

    Thanks Mesquite:
    If I turned around on the road, nothing to see but a brush-covered rock wall that
    rises up out of sight. This is a perfect example of my random success.
    There must be flaws in my hand-written instructions for picture posting.
    The next 5 trials were failures!

    A destination that is worth the journey. Lovely images.

    There are some extraordinary campsites in there.
    One, by a rushing mountain creek, has space for 6-8 holiday trailers.
    Those people are annual visitors to that site for 2 weeks in each hunting season.
    They clean up so well, you would never know that anyone had been there in 5 years,
    except for some crushed grass.

    However, that entire valley is prime grizzly bear habitat.
    Hiking and camping alone is extremely foolish.
    Accidentally get between the sow and her cubs, she will kill you.
    Accidentally stumble across a partially buried kill (as is their habit)
    you need to be a mile away, very quickly, to stay alive.
    Grizz can sprint at 35mph, fast enough to catch a horse.
