“Find your place on the planet. Dig in, and take responsibility from there”.
— Gary Snyder

...for those who are new here; or visiting; or think they may know but aren't sure:

Area D in the Regional District Central Kootenay is in the south east corner of British Columbia, the western most province in Canada.

It begins at Coffee Creek, in the southern end of Area D,   runs north through historic Ainsworth ,  theVillage of Kaslo with its many charms and the Lardeau Valley, an area which encompasses a handful of small communities surrounded by spectacular scenery, such as that found in Goat Range Provincial Park . Traveling north from there, you will pass through the Lardeau Valley on your way to the northern boundary of Area D at Gerrard - home to the largest fresh water trout in the world.  The western boundary is near Retallack  and to the east, it runs through the incredible Purcell Wilderness conservancy  .   The area is beautiful; the geography is mountainous with large expanses of forest and waterways, most notably,  Kootenay Lake , surrounded to the east and west by the Purcell and Selkirk mountain ranges.
