Beyond Superb Mountain


Waddington Harbor, at the head of the Bute Inlet
N50°52.54
W124°51.46
We woke up today to absolutely clear skies, so we pulled up the anchor and headed for the Bute Inlet. We traveled a total of sixty miles, but the last 35 were remarkable as the Inlet cuts right through the coast range. Now, at the head of the inlet, we are nearly surrounded by massifs and ranges capped with snowfields. The water in the inlet is a cloudy turquoise from all the glacier melt.
And, yes, we did find Superb Mountain, which is impressive, but is just one of the peaks in a chain of peaks, and that chain one of many that rise up 8,000 feet or more from the water.
