The Thumb of Huson    Little Huson Cave Regional Park, N Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

The spectacular entrance way to one of the many caves found at Little Huson Regional Park. The caves are unusual in that they are made up of Quatsino formation limestone that is not common on Vancouver Island. The feature in this image (The thumb) is one of many unusual Karst formations that can be found in the area.

About the Image: I had explored the caves a couple of years earlier but was limited in my exploration by high water levels. On this adventure Vancouver Island had quite the summer drought and the usual raging Atluck creek was but a trickle. Great for me as it gave me the opportunity to take a number of images that I might not be able to take in a high water season.
