Nuk Tessli

July 14th – 18th.

I created Nuk Tessli more than 25 years ago.  I walked for a day and a half through bush without trails to a high altitude lake in British Columbia’s Coast Mountains.  Working alone, I built 2 rustic cabins, and later, with the help of friends, constructed a third.  These became Nuk Tessli.  (The cabins are just visible on the far side of the little bay in the foreground.)  Most people prefer to arrive by float plane.from-the-airThe government would not let me be there without a commercial reason.  Too high for logging or farming, tourism was the only practical money-earner.  My focus was the natural world.mooseAlthough I sold Nuk Tessli in 2012, I still go there every year to guide nature-lovers.columbine
