We roar up the mighty and muddy Stikine River, which headwaters in the British Columbia interior, aboard a Jet-boat. Visibility is near zero early on, but the mists allow peeks now and then of hundreds of prone, skeletal tree trunks washed down from the highlands and a few eagles. We finally edge close to dark cliffs laced with unnamed waterfalls before venturing into a clearwater stream, Andrew Creek. Finally we re-enter the main river, then turn north into the stream that feeds from Chief Shakes Lake and the Chief Shakes Glacier.
