2015 - MEXICO - Canon del Sumidero - In a Hurry

The boat ride down the Sumidero Canyon on the Grijalva River was leisurely with stops at many points of interest with the guide expounding on the highlights - in Spanish only so we just sat and enjoyed the view.

The trip back up river was a completely different experience. I think the boat operators must get brownie points for the fastest return time.

A spate of accidents involving tour boats occurred from late 2009 to early 2010, claiming the lives of six tourists and hurt sixty two others. The accidents occurred on decrepit boats, many of which were operating without permission with underage or unlicensed crew members. There were no ambulance boats and no first aid services on shore. Two of the cooperatives, Ángel Albino Corzo and Nandiume were suspended and fined for the accidents, taking about sixty boats out of operation. These boating accidents caused significant problems for the tourism industry. Subsequently the government stepped in to licensed and oversee the boat operators.

Commercial activity in the park is limited to tourist services, sales of food and Mexican handcrafts and folk art. Tour operators are organized into cooperatives, with food and craft vendors working independently. The merchants must receive an annual permit to operate within the park’s borders. The most important of these businesses are the boats ferrying people through the canyon along the Grijalva River. Most of the boat tours operate out of Chiapa de Corzo and run along the river to the Chicoasén Dam for a distance of about thirty km. Chiapa de Corzo has two main docks for the activity. The largest and oldest is called Cahuare, with paved areas and a restaurant. The second smaller one also has restaurants and a swimming area (if you dare swimming in polluted water). The two docks host six tour cooperatives, with about 120 boats that hold between ten and forty passengers each.


The scenery of the canyon has become a major tourist attraction for the state, with developments for eco tourism and extreme sports. The navigable part of the Grijalva River is mostly used to ferry visitors into the canyon area. The park has six lookout points accessible by land called La Ceiba, La Coyota, El Roblar, Tepehuaje, Los Chiapas and Manos. In the rainy season, tourism is enhanced by the activity of waterfalls such as the Árbol de Navidad, Cueva del Hombre, Cueva del Silencio, Cueva de Colón, Cueva de Colores and Cueva del Suspiro. The most important economic activity in the canyon is ecotourism. Most of the visitors are Mexicans. Weekends are busiest with local and regional visitors to bike, swim, hike, camp and picnic.

The canyon is the second most visited site in Chiapas, after Palenque . The park is visited annually by 300,000 people about 80% are from Mexico and the rest from abroad. During vacation times, the park may be visited by anywhere from 1,000 to 7,000 people per day, who either enter by car to go to the lookout points or enter by water by boat from Chiapa de Corzo. Entrance and boating fees can generate about 70,000 pesos per day for cleanup efforts. The number of visitors to the park hit a peak in 2003 with about 196,500.

Three fishermen in a boat for a morning outing on Beaver Lake adjacent to Chesaw Road east of Oroville Washington.

They may have been camped at the tiny Beaver Lake campground (11 sites) on the east end of the small lake.

Chesaw Road relates to the town of Chesaw named for Chinese settler Chee Saw, who arrived in the mid-1890s and married a Native American woman. The town sprang up and thrived during a brief gold rush from 1896 to 1900

2015 - Vancouver  - Sunspot

For approximately one week in early July the city took on an eerie orangy-yellowy colour from smoke filtered sun due to forest fires near Squamish and on Vancouver Island.

The smoke was so dense one day the smoke detector in our condo went off.

I was in Pineville Missouri the night the Joplin tornado tore through. We used a church basement as a shelter. I'm a bit claustrophobic so I mostly stood outside under a lean-to and watched the weather.

After things calmed down the next day we went to this state park in Oklahoma for a few nights in the tents. The front which brought the tornadoes finished going through on the evening of this photo, The incongruity of the devastation and the beauty that followed was thought provoking.
