On January 9, 1965 an earthquake caused Johnson’s peak near Hope BC, to tumble to the valley below. Approximately 60 million cubic yards of rock, snow etc slid into the valley, destroying 3 kilometers of highway, burying Outram Lake as well as four motorists. Two bodies were recovered from the rubble but two people and their vehicles still remain buried under the rocks.

    I thought at first this was a cairn to guide hikers, like the many we see along the mountain trails in Colorado. Then I read in your text that it’s a marker of a fatal accident. And so I understand and appreciate your particular visual treatment of this scene. Another memorable image from you, which is no surprise at this point.

  • many thanks Peter :))
