Dune 2021

Expected October 1, 2021

Eclipse / Dark Side of the Moon / Pink Floyd

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Frank HerbertDune


I’m a Dune fan too.

I’ve read Dune (1965) Dune Messiah (1969) Children of Dune (1976)
and consider them to be Spiritually inspired works.
I can easily why they are considered major Science Fiction Classics
and why they appeal to so many. 

Most film adaptations and mini-series have been excellent.

Now comes a new adaptation.

I look forward to it.

The Ochre Trail … The Paint Pots

28 Oct

The Paint Pots

Along Ochre Creek …

… we find a tangled mess of timber in the stream.

Spring runoff must be spectacular here.
Finally … the Paint Pots
2 small green ponds and a Paint Pot (right).

Ever seen a green pond like this?
And that’s not the reflection from the trees.
A unique environment.

There’s the Paint Pot.

The Ochre Paint Pot spring. 

One day to be a choke cone?

The Ochre Trail … The Choke Cones

20 Oct

Mountain Spring High · Gabriel LewisJust before the Paint Pots on
Ye Old Ochre Trail 
we encounter the Choke Cones.

Sign image borrowed from the Net.

What are Choke Cones you might ask?

Sign says:

CHOKED CONE

This “choked” cone resulted from the accumulation
of iron oxide or hydroxide around the rim of a pool.
As the rim grew, the pool deepened. The increased
pressure of water in the pool became greater than the
force of water in the spring causing the spring to
seek a new outlet. When this happened, the pot
eventually dried up, forming a “choked” cone.The Kootenay Choke Cones appear to be of little or no interest to anybody
as I could find no images and little information about them on the net.
We, ourselves, marched blithely past them 
like cityslicker robots
without taking a photo. 
The image above is stolen off the wonderful Google Maps.
So I hope I’m not boring everybody to death with this stuff. 

BUT!
just in case you ARE interested at all …

The Ochre Trail … Ye Olde Ochre Mine

13 Oct

Changes / Gordon Lightfoot (written by Phil Ochs)

“Don’t it always seem to go   
that you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.”
Big Yellow Taxi / Joni Mitchell / 1970

The next thing you see on Ye Olde Ochre Trail is

Ye Olde (abandoned) Ochre Mine.

Check the map …

A bit of History: 

The Ochre Mine / Kootenay National Park

“In the early 1900s, mineral claims were issued, and
extensive mining of the iron oxide deposits in the marsh below
the springs occurred for use as a pigment in paint manufacture.
The Paint Pots site was incorporated into Kootenay National Park
when it was formed in 1920 at which point
mining
activity halted.”

Mining operation was “halted in 1920”
– the miners were
kicked out of the Park. 
But it’s a sure bet though that paint companies soon found out
how to creating any colour anyway – including Ochre – 
and thus ended the demand for natural Ochre. 

At the Ochre Mine site you’ll see these 2 (almost unreadable) signs.

It shows that the Park folks once cared about this site.

That’s not apparent now.

Yesterday’s garbage is tomorrow’s treasure.

There are now worrying signs of neglect.
Apart from the poor condition of the signs 
we see much abuse of the old mining equipment 
which is just strewn about the area – open to obvious abuse.

Some already has graffiti on it. 

Soon much of this will simply be taken by people
– or destroyed.

Lost forever.

Who knows what is already missing?

Nor is there any information on how Ochre mining was done?
We can see this old equipment, but how was it used?
We don’t know.

Found some of this nearby.
I’m guessing this would have been the final mining product.
Dried Ochre.
Golden yes … 
But it does not glitter.
Once somebody’s dream?
In the palm of my hand.

The Ochre Trail …

8 Oct

Golden Slumbers / Mindy Gledhill

 I admit I didn’t really expect much.
Thought it would just be a nice easy hike.
But it proved to be something else. 

The Ochre Trail

The first thing you see is the
The Fancy Bridge and Creek.Look at that thing!?? You could drive a tank across that. 
But also look at that creek. I’m betting at certain times of the year
this creek is pretty well impassable – especially at Spring runoff.
And it’s likely that previous bridges were washed away. 
So they built this amazing thing. 

There’s a nice view from the Bridge.

Resting. Already?
Why not?
I’m in no hurry.

When we move up the trail, the ochre appears instantly.

It’s almost shocking. The whole area is covered with it! 
Gold water, gold creeks, gold mud … !

A golden wonderland!

Not all ochre is gold coloured like this. It comes in different shades: red, brown, yellow …

I kind of think this gold ochre would have been prized.

A golden pathway.
Even the boardwalk is gold.

Our own yellow brick road.
There must be a wizard up ahead …
But w
here is it coming from?

We’ll soon see …

Ochre … the stuff that dreams were made of …

A Summer Song / Chad and Jeremy

Sign say:

Welcome to the Paint Pots!

Indigenous peoples attach great importance to the “red earth” or ochre found in the this area. Different groups have been traveling to this sacred place for thousands of years collect the ochre. It has been used for painting bodies, tipis, clothing, and horses, as well as for rock paintings.

In the early 1900s the ochre was commercially mined for use as pigment in paint. Some of the pieces of equipment remain along the trail. After Kootenay National Park was established in 1920, mining was gradually phased out to protect the landscape.

The three pots or pools formed are by the accumulation of iron oxide around the outlet of three cold mineral springs. In some areas, “choked cones” or wide mounds of ochre, formed when the water in the pools dried up.

The Ochre Creek Trail is 1.9 Kilometers (1 1/8 miles) long. 

You know, I still can’t figure things in Metric terms.
I was brought up on the Imperial system. 
So if you tell me something about a Mile long,
I have a very good idea how far that is. 
If you say Kilometers? Not so much.


Anyway, it’s not a long hike. 
And mostly flat.
I’d still say a hiking stick would be useful.
And a bit of water/snacks. 
Listen Cityslicker, you are still out in the wild.
Be prepared.  

Off we go …

Dear WordPress …

Yes, I realize the Old WP Editor is deficient in a few ways … so I really tried to give your New Editor an honest try – and hoped it would be good. It does look like it might be? BUT I can’t figure out how to use it!?! And after several hours of frustration, I really had to give up. Frankly I wasn’t that great with the old one, but I have figured out how to get most things done. You know, initially, I think a lot of us Bloggers that over came here because we couldn’t figure out how to build Webpages. So this was a nice alternative. And I’m guessing there’s a huge Tutorial around here somewhere showing how to use the New Editor … and I might even look that up? But again, I can get this thing done with the Old Editor.

Thank You. 

See?

Marble Canyon is not a long nor difficult hike.

It takes about an hour to get to the Falls.
A hiking stick is useful – water and snacks.

It’s still beautiful.

“The Berry Tree”, by Saul Chaplin
from Many Rivers to Cross (1955)

Beary Country

I’m always scared about bears when I go up into the mountains.
Though I’ve never encountered any except from seeing them from my car.

I still want to be cautious. 
This year there have been a lot of bear encounters because it rained a lot
in the early summer – which created a lot of berries – being
a main food source for Black Bears and Grizzly Bears.
Thus, they have been posting a lot of warnings. 

Sign Says: 

It’s berry season

Bear encounters are likely

Berry bushes border trails, roads and
campgrounds. Black and Grizzly bears
are feeding
on berries right now.

It is easy to surprise a bear
that is focused on
feeding.

To reduce your risk:

– Make noise while on trails.
– Travel in tight groups.
– Trail running and cycling place you at a much higher

risk. Travel very slowly. Do not wear buds.
– Carry bear spray. ensure it is accessible, and
know how to use it.
– Watch for fresh bear signs such as scat.
– Be especially careful near berry patches.
– If you see a bear, stay calm, back away slowly

and leave the area. Never run.

OK … heading up to Marble Canyon …

The Berry Tree“, by Saul Chaplin
from Many Rivers to Cross (1955)

Those berries reminded me of a Western I had seen when I was a kid:
Many Rivers to Cross (1955)
which had this catchy song The Berry Tree“.


I still sing it on occasion, which shows how powerful a song/jingle can be.
Don’t remember that much about the movie though.

Here’s a Trailer:

It was a bit mushy for a kid,
but there was some action in there.

The Vanishing Glaciers … 3 Days in Banff

3 Sep


The Da Vinci Code / piano cover


The mills of God grind … 

… not so slowly.

Glacier

Last year in Jasper National Park at the Columbia Icefields
we took a short hike to the foot of the glacier. 

It told the story of the vanishing glaciers.

In 1948 the Columbia Glacier (in background) came down to here. 

In 1992 the glacier came down to here.

In 2006 it came down to here.

They figure it will be completely gone in about 80 years.

Sign? What sign?

Sign says:

“PLEASE STAY ON TRAIL
Safety Check

Do not leave the trail without a guide
Watch children closely and keep them near.
Leash your pet.
Pack out litter.
So not remove anything from landscape.”
“Walking out onto the glacier is dangerous.
There are many hazards, including
some that are hidden.
People have died here.
Remember this a wilderness area:
Caution and self-reliance are essential.”

But there were people all over that thing …

It often comes from far away. 

But in the mountains, us earthbound folk know that somewhere above – out of sight –
there is likely a glacier.

3 Days in Banff … Takakkaw Falls

Cowboy’s Lullaby / Yodeling Slim Clark (c.1951).

Takakkaw Falls 

“Takakkaw” translates to “wonderful” in Cree Native language.
And wonderful it is.
The falls are fed by the meltwater of the Daly Glacier, which is part of the Waputik Icefield

Takakkaw Falls (also spelled Takkakaw) is located in Yoho National Park, near Field, British Columbia in Canada. The falls have a total height of 373 metres (1,224 ft), making it the 2nd tallest waterfall in Canada.
The main drop of the waterfall has a height of 254 metres (833 ft).

We took a lot of pics up here. 

Did you spot the 3 people?

I don’t think they walked up there.
