Got away from the farm a few times this past summer, long enough to explore some more of the wild and wonderful ‘river of mist’ that flows through these lands.  The pristine Skeena watershed is under threat from Shell’s coal-bed methane fracking plans upstream and Enbridge’s tar sands bitumen pipe-dream downstream.

In the Elms

Thanks to visiting Swedish arborist and world-champion tree-climber Veronika Ericsson for giving the 100 year old elm trees around the old homestead some much needed attention.   Quite fitting, as the trees were originally planted by the Swedish settlers who farmsteaded here.  Photos by Veronika and Katrin.
