Here is the second in a series of videos that will hopefully give you a better idea of what Desolation Sound is really like, since the Sound is the wildly bi-polar central character in my book Adventures in Solitude. The first video put us in the middle of the Sound, bobbing in the ‘chuck, and this one takes us a couple hundred feet into the rainforest that surrounds it. And as densely wooded as it seems, it has been logged twice, a deadly, solitary practice, once in the late 1800s and again in the mid-1950s. That won’t happen again as a huge area of it was declared the largest marine park on the West Coast of Canada in 1973.
