Tsocowis Creek to Tsusiat Falls (10 km)
As we packed up camp the group we camped with on Day 1 gave Jayson a bottle of fuel they found. A man named Joe lost it and asked them if they found it to send the bottle of fuel towards him. We took the bottle and I have to admit I thought we would never find Joe.
We walked on a lot of shelf today. I think walking on the shelf was my favourite type of hiking of the whole trip!
Around Valancia Bluffs (km 18) we saw an abandoned grader and donkey engine on the trail. I assume they were used to maintain the trail in the past. I also saw a boiler from a ship that was in the sea around Trestle Creek (km 20) and an anchor on the beach.
We also had to use our first cable car at Klanawa River (km 22) which was a blast!
When we got to camp we swam under Tsusiat falls. The water was cold but it was refreshing.
When we got to our campsite we found some people had buried their fire rather than putting it out. The still smoldering fire let us get a nice fire going real quickly. Unfortunately it started raining and we did our best to build a make shift shelter with the fire.
We also found Joe who was camping at Tsusiat falls and were able to return his fuel. The entrance to the outhouses and bear caches at Tsusiat camp are behind 4-5 feet of piled up logs. This makes for an interesting adventure in the middle of the night 🙂
I know all this post seems disjointed, but it was that kind of day, lots of random stuff with the only connection being it was on the trail 🙂
