    I just today tried to explain this concept to my wife and sister after we briefly watched a show about king salmon. I love that fish figure out how to find new habitat. I wish I would have thought of the Ice Age example.

    The hike into the upper Chillawack Valley is a spectacular trip giving the hiker a snap shot of what the low land forest must of once been like in this region. You will find the classic example of old growth forest with huge cedars (diameters of 10 to 12 feet).

    While seeing the various fish species (including sockeye and kokanee) is interesting the real eye opener is how wonderful that undistributed river habitat is. Once viewing that habitat it is easy to see why fish production levels have been so significantly reduced in nearly all of our streams.

    You could hike to Hannegan Pass and camp, hike down the Chilliwack the next day. There are some spectacular views from the pass. The last time I was there we did see bears so hang your food.

    It's a few miles from the trailhead to Hannegan pass. I goat hunted up there in 1995. No goat. Also went up the ridge directly above the trailhead. Now that is some steep territory.
