8.1 Til’héeni, dog salmon stream (Salmon Creek watershed)

I’m inserting a page for this watershed belatedly; thus the ‘oops-think-ahead-next-time‘ decimal numbering.  At least ‘8.1’ will keep things organized on the general NW-to-SE trend, between 8 Shaanáx Tlein (Lemon) and 9 Dzantik’i Heeni (Gold)

A number of converging interests—landslides, giant trees, and mountain goats—have drawn my friends and me to Til’héeni, dog salmon stream (Salmon Creek).  To explore this new addition to featured Aak’w watersheds, check out:

  1. A slideshow about the landslide pond that  I created but never posted back in the innocent prepandemic days of 2019.
  2. The amazing 1981 Environaid report by Bishop, Caulfield, Jacoby and Moore.
  3. Ideas about access to giant-tree forests on very steep slopes.
