Alone - The Series
Does anyone else watch this series? Its on the History Channel.
I've been watching it since the first season (its into season 8 this year), partly because the first two seasons were filmed on Vancouver Island. This season is particularly interesting for me cause it is being filmed in my area. Well, not quite. The location is 220 km west (about a 5 hour drive) in the heart of the Coast Mountain Range. They did a very good job of keeping this quiet cause no one seemed to know anything about it, until an article in the local paper just before it went to air. This coming Thursday (June 17) will be the third episode.
If anyone has any doubts about how many grizzlies they have seen so far, let me tell you, they have not filmed them all! This area is heavily populated with grizzlies! I think the woman who is building the pit house will have the best protection from them. The pit house is a modification of the pit houses that are traditional in this area. What a lot of digging! I think she will be warmer than everyone else, too.
The wild onions that one person found are fairly common in that area and will dry well for storage. It will be interesting to see how much and what types of wild food they will find.
The scenery is as stunning as they have made it out to be. No photo editing needed on this trip. Chilko Lake is 65 km long and oriented so that the winds really blow from one end to the other. It has a reputation for being a dangerous lake for boating. And yes, it is that beautiful, turquoise blue colour.
