This trip mostly involved a last-minute 8-day kayaking expedition in the Gwaii Haanas National Park's Lyell Island with the Pacific Rim Paddling company. We had uncommonly sunny weather on the first half of the trip, and by the time the cloudy weather rolled in, we had reached the hot springs.

We also stayed a couple of nights in Sandspit at the north end of South Moresby Island
