Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, so I'm searching but my eyes are aching from the beauty of BC. How do you wake up every morning without the tears welling up from the sheer awesomeness of it all?

And I've been some places and seen some stuff...

Gonna take a break, early work day tomorrow.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

WELL above Chatterbox falls, which is at sea level. The falls pictured are at the old 'trapper's cabin', something like 1200 feet elevation and a pretty tricky clamber up the mountain rather than a regular hike. Don't think those falls have a name, if so I don't know it.

At the narrows in the distance is Camp Malibu, it started out as a German owned resort but for many years now has been run by one of the major churches as a retreat. Fabulous piece of property.

The inlet is, as you can see, steep-to, about 5 miles long and is a magical place. Entering by the narrows tidal gate, it's nearly mystical as you enter. There are two places to stay, a few mooring buoys at the island just partially visible in the picture, and a free dock at Chatterbox Falls.

After a rainy week the entire inlet is a showcase of cascading waterfalls.. best conditions are freshly clear and sunny after a wet week or two, it's truly spectacular. Not a freebie, though, as it's about a 38nm trek up the fiords and reaches, a twice or thrice daily tidal entry gate, and just as far back out with precious few barely tenable overnight spots along the way. Most do the trip in a day, at least to/from Egmont or Dark Cove.

Some more shots:

Looking back once through, every slack is a bit of a parade....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This picture was taken on an unusually gray day. Its a lot more colorful when the sun comes out.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Road Town is too far north. I'll bet Zanshin has been in this harbor.

The photo is not as clear as I had hoped or you'd easily recognize a fort at the top of the hill. The light color building is not on shore.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The hill and fort look like Fort de France overlooking Marigot on St. Martin - but those buildings and docks just aren't right, plus Marigot is only a bit south and 80 miles east of Road Town. Hmm.. but those round-bulb lights on the shore road are distinctive and that white building would be the Capitanerie at the marina; and 2006 would be before the breakwater was built which significantly changed the landscape. Here's a picture taken from the ferry dock, 90 CCW as seen from the Fort:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zanshin's right. The light color building is the Capitainerie on a pier at the Marina Fort Louis, directly opposite the distinctive building with the 5 gables. The gabled building is at the extreme left of Zanshin's photo.

BTW, I checked my other photos from the trip and there was a circular breakwater in place in 2006 that is consistent with the current GE view. Actually, I'd like to go back and verify it in person

Zanshin's turn.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm on my way there right now - I depart for the BVI tomorrow morning and always anchor right outside the breakwater in Marigot when in St. Martin so I'll be there soon!
Since everything is packed away I won't be able to use a photo of my own and might not be online too much (30 hours travel time between Munich and the BVI) but here goes:
