Basalt and waves mystery at Tow Hill, Naikoon Provincial Park - Haida Gwaii

Like mysterious creatures from a distant era, beached at the end of a long journey across the sea, the preserved basalt rocks on display in the Tow Hill area of Naikoon Provincial Park are as beautiful as they are intriguing.

Wave after wave, the surf yields the sounds, lights and the feelings that emerge from finding oneself in a remote part of British Columbia where humans can still experience what it is like to be mere guests in nature's domain.

How sweet it is to take in the sense of place emanating from this magical spot on northern Graham Island; how sweet indeed it is to know that is only one of many others on Haida Gwaii.
