The wonderful Ashlu valley.
As we spent out time making our way up the road along with Ben Hawthorne in his small truck we could see all the damage the new dam has caused in the past year. Right above the 50/50 bridge a mile or so the dam is almost fully done. There is more logging, clearing, mining, and human influence in such a natural valley. What I can't understand is how the Squamish nation can stand by and allow this to happen.
"I guess it's all about the bank and how much moneys in it" I quote Classified a Canadian hiphop artist. It's true they are taking the best resource in the world and selling it off for a few million dollars. It could be a good choice for the present moment. However everyone in this ever growing world needs to stop seeing how the "here and now" is affecting them and look to the future. This place is unreal surrounded with high peaks, glaciers, crystal clear clean cold water, and no civilization. Listen to old EG, these will be the most sought after places on earth in a very short time. I leave it at that.
P.S. Tatlow creek is da bomb so is the Box (Commitment canyon) go there before it's all gone. We then left promptly north in the chase of the GCS.
