Chilkat Pass BC

I spent two years at remote Chilkat Pass on the Yukon/BC border, studying winter migration and predation of willow ptarmigan. I used radiotags to find the animals through the winter. This little-known corner of BC has some magnificent scenery. Some of the area is now protected by Tashenshini Provincial Park.

 

The first year I lived in a small shack in the middle of the pass, perfectly in line with a highway of storms rolling in from the Pacific. The second year, I graduated to a much nicer log cabin with wind and solar power on the Yukon/BC border, in present-day Tatshenshini Provincial Park.
