Peaks at the Head of Queens Reach # 4859

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2003.12.30
Vantage Point: From Queens Reach South of Malibu

Caption: Peaks on the west side of Skwaka River at the head of Queens Reach. The peak on the left is likely Mount Alfred.

PhotoDescr: My family headed up to Princess Louisa Inlet for New Years 2004. While up there we tried to head up to the alpine but were stymied by snow and complete lack of trail (that we could follow under the snow). While spending a solitary New years, Queens Reach actually froze over for several kilometers. Much fun was had riding up on the ice in kayaks, although breaking through it on the way home was somewhat unnerving. A very rough crossing back to Nanaimo took place the next day in full winter conditions.
