Day 6: (Tsusiat Falls - Darling River)
km 25 - km 14
Finally, the weather situation begins to get better. Having left Tsusiat
after some rain in the night (fresh bear tracks on the trail!), up on
the cliffs the fog begins to clear. And, after 5 days on the trail, we
see the first whales! First, there is only a hint of spray very far away
on the ocean. As the fog clears away, we finally see at least two big
whales in the distance.
We find a nice campsite at Darling River. From our tent we can see two
humback whales apparently "grazing" some 100 meters from
the shore. A school of Orcas swims north at an incredible speed. This is
one of the greatest evenings on the trail, we also get an incredible sundown.
