Gardner Canal July 5, 2010
We left Kitsaway for Gardner Canal hoping to be able to anchor at Omycumish which is a stunning anchorage with high snow capped peaks many waterfalls but very iffy steep declining bottom with poor holding holding. when we got there the wing was blowing on shore and we decided to head for Europa Hot Springs instead. We ran up the canal first to have a look at Kimono Bay which is the locating of the ALCAN hydro electric facility which is located 1400 feet inside a solid granite mountain supplying power to the Aluminum plant located in Kitimat.
Their dock was good for only their blur boat so we turned around and joined the Colliers and Stewarts on wonderful new buoys at Europa Hot Springs. This was also a very scenic location with a well maintained cover Hot Springs .
