After yet another night of heavy rain, the weather improved and four of us went on an impromptu walk in the afternoon to see the karst features off the Granite Bay Rd. We followed a sketchy route along the sinkholes, climbing down into the depressions and exploring the insurgences and resurgences. There wasn’t as much water flowing as we had hoped, but we enjoyed the water disappearing and reappearing in the Quatsino limestone. We then walked over to the falls into the really big sinkhole off of North Mtn Hookup. About 2 hours. On the drive back we stopped to see the Chum spawning in Haycinthe Creek. Though many were dead, some were still fighting their way upstream.
