I regretfully report that, except for the short portions passing through a provincial park and protected talus slopes, the Kamloops Forest District, the BC Forest Service and loggers have cooperated in the complete destruction of the beautifully scenic Eakin Creek Road. And this wasn’t clearing off dead pine trees along the right-of-way – this was convenient access logging, from the road, of huge fir, cedar, birch and aspen, leaving an ugly mess behind.
No longer will tourists, fishermen, bicyclists, photographers or Sunday afternoon wanderers take that route. And the nearby resorts have little of scenic surroundings to entice tourist to visit, let alone to stay that extra day. Wildlife habitat has been wantonly destroyed in pursuit of profit and stumpage fees with complete disregard of these other values.
Curses on you all!!!
With your indiscriminate logging you have turned a beautiful bit of road into the equivalent of a World War I battle field. It will not be restored to its former beauty in my lifetime nor yours. You should all hang your collective heads in shame.
