Artwork Description

“I remember the trip I took at Eliguk Lake lake which lies in the Chilcotin country and is very remote. We travelled by quad along the old Alexander Mackenzie Trail which meanders the river of the Blackwater. It was difficult since one was covered in blackflies within moments of stopping. There were cabins and homesteads along the way where the inhabitants used rubber wheeled wagons to get around. I tried to gather reference of all the structures and I feel these studies will be a part of history. Once at the lake the flies were gone and the fishing was fabulous. Well worth the effort.”
