Deserted Bay hadn't been deserted for too long.  There was still an aluminum gang plank to a float covered with heron crap, otter puke, and flies.  Nice.  At the head of the bay was an outfall culvert that provided a very cold shower.

In to Desolation Sound to look for pictographs.  This appears to be a warrior with a weapon in his right hand.  The lower body may have fallen away.
