Try the YellowBelly burger at YellowBelly brewery & pub on Water Street in St. John's. So good washed down with a cold brew.

Is that a whale vertebrate?

Great photos -- since it seems topical, anyone got suggestions for a less crowded backpacking trip for this weekend? Anything under 50km...

Manning has been slammed lately. We were hiking out the other day and passed 39 incoming with overnight packs. Just bonkers.

Great photos,and nice work on the Frontier. Looks bush worthy. Are all those pics Northern island? Doesn't look like there's gates everywhere like South island.

Most definitely some sort of cetacean vertebrae. Banana for scale, and let me tell you, hiking that back to the truck sucked the entire time.

All pics except the Ship I work on, and the waterfall/landslide fall are north of Hwy 4.
I rarely ever venture further south than Port Alberni, there's just one lake I visit and maybe Carmanah but that's it.

good luck finding uncrowded hiking. its getting stupider and stupider.

Holy crap!  How heavy is it?

Roughly 50-55 lbs, it was a lot heavier soaking wet especially after an hour and a half of bushwacking. it probably weighed more like 250 lbs by the end, or so it seemed.
I ended up finding some rope that washed up on the beach and made a giant whale bone necklace, while supporting the bottom by having it rest on my belt, kinda like flava flav with his stupid clock.

If you find it, don't share! I don't go anywhere on holiday weekends anymore.

What are you guys using for image hosting these days? Can't seem to get my links to work.

I thought the beach photo of the whale vert was cool... but the fact that you lugged it back to a truck is epic.

On the one hand I felt sorta bad for depriving others a chance to see it.. on the other I don't even want them to find the beach I was at, needless to say it doesn't see many visitors.
