Here are a few video/slide shows I have put together of a kayaking trip I made in British Columbia and Alaska along the Inside Passage. The first one is the shuttle back to my starting point on the Alaska Marine Highway ferry. If you want to hear the background music make sure your speakers are on.

....is a big serious chunk of moving water and the time it takes to cross leaves the potential for you to experience plenty of change. I've crossed it only once and the conditions were perfect yet I stopped only long enough in the Deserters for a quick caloric refuel as I felt like I was stealing something and might get caught. I know that you are familiar with that feeling.
Time to cross QCS|

You got me thinking about how long it took me to cross QCS so I pulled out my charts to see my time marks. I left Duval Point at the NW tip of Port Hardy at 8:25am, I passed through the Gordon Islands at 9:25, rounded Castle Point on Desserters Island at 10:30, passed through the Millar Group at 11:25 and reached the mainland coast at 12:15. Just about four hours with no breaks other than water and a power bar.

Here are a few more slideshows (with music) from that trip I took in 2007. I posted three that were sort of complete earlier but these complete that trip along with music of my choosing rather than WMG's.

Sorry I missed this thread a year ago. I've followed Jon's blog for a long while and really enjoyed Dennis's, too. Lyn (a big fan of Thermarests)

....a trip report on this site a few years back when she and a partner paddled from Bella Bella to Port Hardy. Look it up. She has some great photos of that trip.
