"A Little Bit Of Heaven"
This is what I call the confluence of the Williston Lake reservoir. It is where the Parsnip, Finlay and Peace Reaches of the Lake meet. I am about to paddle down the Peach Reach part of the lake with the Mishinchika and Muskwa Mountain Ranges in the distance. June 2001.
Men may dam it and say that they have made a lake, but it will still be a river. It will keep its nature and bide its time, like a caged animal alert for the slightest opening. In time, it will have its way; the dam, like the ancient cliffs, will be carried away piecemeal in the currents. -- Wendell Berry
