Day 2: Surging channels, running rivers (Camper Bay - Cullite Cove)
km 62 - km 58
Had a nice start with a group of five Canadians. Walking in the group is
very convenient because of [sfx: drum roll] Adrenaline Surge, a
very difficult surge channel. We got there when the tide was low, so
there wasn't much water but the channel is covered with slimy green
stuff. A rope definitely comes in very handy here. The rest is a very
nice walk on the sandstone shelf where we got very nice views of the ocean.
Had to leave the shelf via Sandstone Creek, again we had much help from
the Canadians. The lower part of Sandstone Creek includes a lot of climbing
over fallen trees and big boulders. Nice to see the Trail again...
Camping at Cullite Cove. Great site. Cullite Creek (?) forms a nice pool
which is great for swimming (which we do, at least the creek is warmer
than the ocean!) In the evening some guy catches a salmon with his foot! It's
trying to swim up into the creek and the guy just walkes by and flicks
it out (does that count as illegal fishing?) The campsite is filled with
the smell of grilled salmon. Yummy!
