Vancouver & Coast
Wisps of fog often
shroud the sheer granite walls of the secluded, fjord-like waterway
called the Princess Louisa Inlet in southwest British Columbia northwest
of Vancouver and not far, as the crow flies, from the world-class Whistler
A popular anchorage
for sailors, yachtsmen and small cruise ships, the inlet is reached from
the Strait of Georgia via the 70-mile long Jervis Inlet which probes the British
Columbia mainland between Powell River and Horseshoe Bay.
The 1,000-foot deep
(300 meters) Princess Louisa Inlet itself is about five miles (eight
kilometers) in length, no more than 1/2 mile wide (800 meters) at its
broadest point and is almost completely enclosed by mountains which rise
sharply from the water's edge to elevations of 7,000 feet (2,100 meters)
