In-Shuck-Ch Forest Services Road

Took a load of magnesium chloride to a forest service road northwest of Pemberton called In-Shuck-Ch.  Not sure what it stands for but it could mean the road from hell.  I only had to go 44 km but it took me 1 1/2 hours. By the time I got there I was pretty shook up even though I only travelled about 15-20 km/hr.  It was a very hot and beautiful day however so I just sucked it up and done the job.  It took about 8 hours to unload the 32000 litres of mag in my tanks instead of the usual 2-4 hours.  Because of this I got back to the yard late and didn’t get much sleep before heading to the Chevron Refinery to load up some ashphalt to be delivered in Chilliwack the next morning.

The drive as always was spectacular and I took some photos as usual.  Wish I had more time to check out some of the amazing river valleys and majestic mountain shots that were present along the way.  I did however stop alongside a graveyard belonging to a First Nations family by the name of James and took some photos.  It was kind of unique set on a knoll surrounded by trees with the Lillooet River running below it.  There were two headstones for children with dates that related to five and eight years old which made me sad as they didn’t even get a chance at life really.  Tried to keep a fair distance away while taking the photos to honor their beliefs (I hope anyways) of not disturbing the dead.  Well that’s all bye for now.

    your picts. Paul are delightful as usual. That Shuck-ch Rd. sounds dreadful. very sad story about the James,first Nation story. You can’t help wonder what the children passed away from?
