Salmon season is coming!!!


I Visit again yesterday the largest collection of privately owned story (totem) poles in the world at the Story Pole Park, at the Capilano bridge park. Numerous poles were commissioned in the early 1930s and carved by the First Nations of the South West Coast.The most recent poles have been carved on-site by Pacific North West carvers. The newest addition to the collection is the Salmon Pole, carved by Master Carver Wayne Carlick during Capilano's 2005 Year of the Salmon celebrations.

It must be very interesting to visit such a place; My father was in Vancouver in the 50ies and I've some pictures of such totems taken in that time.
