Paul Kubik - Environmental concerns (outhouse)
CASBC qoutes Brian Gould, "The Keith Flavelle Hut, in the headwaters of Cerise Creek, is quite popular. Instructional groups in particular have taken to camping instead in a flat area at about 2,000 m on the ENE ridge of Joffre, aka "Motel 66", at GR 405767 (92 J/8). The makeshift latrine there is becoming full. Users of this area are asked to be very aware of environmental impacts, particularly regarding human waste disposal and water quality. Practice "Leave No Trace" ethics at all times. It may be that a proper toilet should be built there, but it will take commitment, time and money to do this. A nanny and kid goat have been frequenting Motel 66, apparently attracted by salt. They are becoming used to humans, which will make them easy prey for hunters. Please don't encourage goats to frequent this area, and if you see any, scare them away with noise - perhaps after a quick picture!"
