    Ken Bigelow, a volunteer with BC Marine Trails, has produced a Virtual Reality Tour of Ramillies Channel. If you’ve never visited this site on Gambier Island, the tour lets you see what’s there before you go. Ken has plans to add tours of the other Howe Sound sites over time.

    This was highlighted in the current BC Marine Trail’s newsletter. To get the newsletter in your email, click link and then the subscribe button on that page.

    Hey Nick

    Actually the sounds you hear in the background was recorded on Fromme Mountain in North Vancouver last June.

    The plan is to record some onsite sounds to give the user more of a authentic experience for the marine campsites. I will be able to change the sounds very easily once this is done.

    Consider this beta 1 for feedback!

    This is lovely. Than you Ken!

    I’ve been plumbing my brain to identify the wonderful birdsong that forms the sound track. I’m assuming it is a well-known local songbird (actually sounds like a pair of the same species, possibly somewhat attracted to each other) taken from a fine recording or possibly very meticulously recorded at this site, but, so far, all I think is that it is not Pacific Wren nor Varied Thrush.

    Go on, somebody, please tell me who is singing so beautifully here!

    btw we can almost guarantee lively birdsong at each of the 6 Howe Sd Rec Sites under our stewardship, but the screeching of the Black Oystercatchers at Islet View might  be less melodious!
