The Blue Mountain trail (at the junction of Dewdney Trunk Road and 272nd) was a main spur line of the world's largest logging railway system in its day. This narrow gauge railway system started at Whonnock Lake (Camp No.2) and disappeared into the mountains to the north and beyond.
When I first saw this trail, I knew I it would make a nice painting. I went home and started immediately. It was a warm day but with the shade provided by the trees, the air was cool under its lush canopy.
To the left of the painting, out of sight behind the trees, is Kanaka Creek, which flows parallel to the trail for a short distance before branching away.
