Beyond Cape Caution
2015 Beyond the Broughtons
In the summer of 2015 Gary and Catherine Russell cruised to Ocean Falls. Along the way they kept pilothouse notes to record the trip and to provide information for further visits. They have expanded on the basic notes to make them into a story format.

In 2019, "Lone Wolf" again went north to the Great Bear Rainforest. This trip took about 65 days and the attached document is a well documented story of their trip.
