Pick Up Sticks

I thought this was an appropriate name for this jumble of logs in Coquihalla Canyon gorge near Hope, British Columbia, Canada. This is a view from the Othello Tunnels that were cut through solid granite to allow a railroad to navigate the 300 foot deep canyon. The Kettle Valley Railway was built here between 1912 and 1918 to serve the bonanza Cariboo mining district farther north in BC.  Nowadays it is a hiking trail. Yes, the water is this clear, beautiful and wild. The painting is a 22 x 28-inch acrylic on canvas.
