When I was on sabbatical last summer I was travelling through the southwest then swung up into western BC. One of the things I found while hiking around through forest off of forestry roads was a map. The map was hand drawn and included what apparently was this guys mining location as well as his camp. In the area there are a lot of amateur miners looking for silver, gold as well as less valuable semi-precious minerals.

We were doing something similar, I was just looking for neat souvenirs that didn't come from a gift shop. Anyway, I still have the map, that's my souvenir from that area.

This weekend I was following power trails through bush around where I live. I found something that was strangely out of place, a pristine photograph of a 10 year old girl. This wasn't a snap shot, it was a 5X7 of this girl dressed in her finest. I know it was a 10 year old girl because her name and age were on the back. I picked it up and intended to try and return it to her parents, unfortunately it fell out at some point on the return trip.

And the original Spillway, which has been doing this for years before the rest of 'em.
