Natural Features

The cabin is set at the edge of a tall, dense hemlock-spruce forest on Nakwasina Sound. The cabin faces south, overlooking Nakwasina Sound.

In the early 1960s, several forested areas in Nakwasina Sound were harvested. During the summer, the vegetation pattern in these areas appears more dense and a brighter green, with an overstory of alder and an understory of spruce and hemlock.
Brown bear frequent the area. Learn about bear safety and precautions.
