In the spring of 2012 I had the opportunity to learn how to carve a totem pole with Jay Haavik. I ended up carving my own 11 foot totem pole, and this is the story of that pole.
The summer of 2005 I will be Kayaking the Inside Passage of British Columbia, Canada on a Solo trip from Seattle, Washington to Ketchikan, Alaska. The trip should take about two months, staring on July 16 and ending September 16.
We have our good byes and I start to paddle north up Eld Inlet, past the beer bottles, wrecked cars and old sunken boats. I was getting a little depressed till I paddled up to a Welcome Totem Pole that was facing the way I was to go. I would now be starting and ending the trip at NW Native Totems.
