If this unauthorized use of pictures from this site continues,
I will remove the whole thing,

I ask everyone that enjoys free history sites,
to start policing these violations.
If we don't stop this, no one will donate pictures to me or anyone,
and we all loose.
If you see one of my pictures on facebook, etc.
tell them to remove it, if they don't in a reasonable time,
please email me the culprit,
and I will add them to my
Wall of Shame page.
Trust me, I regret having to do this!

Various views of the Fiberglass cone, built by CT&S in Burnaby.
They flew the first one in, fully equipped with radios etc.
It was dropped half way up the mountain,
when the long line started to spin out of control.
this was actually the 2nd one constructed.
It was flown up empty!

Various site views, with Northern Mountain 206 showing in a couple pics.

Propane Tank field Support Beams

Living Quarters at Bell Irving
Originally it came with 2 canvas bunk beds in the top story of this cone.
Imagine sleeping on top of 3 Telan Generators in the middle floor,
and a room full of Propane tanks on the bottom floor!
This was the reason this emergency shelter was built.
Bell Irving can be clear one minute and cloud in the next.
Sometimes the helicopter couldn't stay, and then it would return
to pick up the 2 workers left on site.
Sometimes this couldn't happen, and you went in prepared to stay overnight
for a few days if need be.
