We camped Alouette Over the weekend and we came upon a trail and to the side of it we saw a lot of first growth tree's. So we walked down and we found a bunch of thick as bundle cable. Then we Came Across This.. Hard to see but the "humps" under the moss are actually railway Ties they used to use to hawl the logging product down to the water at alouette where its taken across the lake :)

Thought ud be interested, Cuz we were.

The reason no tree's are growing on this strip of moss is because the gravel they ly down for the ties so no tree's could grow..

Very hard to see but u gotta trust me on it.

Then we also found this giant water tanker ontop of the mountain that they use for fires if one was to happen.

Was it a rail bed or an old corduroy road? -Ceder boards stacked side by side for a road bed !

Something I didn't know about that park....


Cultural Heritage - Human activity in Golden Ears, both past and present, has been confined to the accessible Alouette Valley in the south of the park. In the 1920s, the forested slopes of the valley became the site of BC's greatest railroad logging operation until a disastrous fire swept through the valley in 1931. The lake and its forested surroundings were also the traditional hunting and fishing grounds for the Douglas-Lillooet (Interior Salish) and Katzie (Coast Salish) First Nations peoples.
