Obviously, the chimney is what makes this not just your average little shack in the country, a chimney covered in wood. Maybe I can get LC (who is my resident guru of all things historical, including flora and fauna) to tell me what that's about. If it's wood on the outside, then what's on the inside? I have to solve this mystery for myself one of these years.
Another place I found led me farther in to the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia. I hadn't heard of this place, but I really like what is going on there. First Nations are reclaiming their traditional home places and tourism done right is making big strides in saving the beauty and wonder of a unique area in the world. It isn't easy to get away from 'what can we do about it?' to doing something but it is happening here.
The following photos are from the blog Solitude Guy.

He also reclaimed a beautiful float house and rents it out, along with a cabin, only reachable by water, available free to anyone who gets there. His blog, Solitude Guy, is full of all sorts of wonderful photos and information and well worth checking out. I could not live someplace that far north but I sure could spend some time visiting. In the summer.
This is an example of the sort of thing on his blog that I really, really like about this guy.
