Photographer's Note

Lake Owikeno is located about halfway between Port Hardy and Bella Coola as a natural inland extension of Rivers Inlet, one of many on rugged British Columbia's coast. Snake-like shape of the lake extends 35 km eastward, then veers sharply to the north with its 25 km long tail squeezing through three gorge-like narrows overshadowed by towering, ice-capped mountains. Down in the valleys raging rivers cut into the rock creating some of the deepest canyons in this part of the continent. Ancient forests, now largely cut, are teeming with life. Black bears and grizzlies, moose, deer, mountain goats and silent cougars: all can be found in this area.
Not that far from this sunken log I saw a few seals that swam 45 km inland in search for the fish.
Most of the time it was quiet, only in the evening one could hear loons echoing from afar.
