Fort Ross, Depot Bay

August 23, 2014

We spent much of the day exploring around the old Hudson Bay Company's trading post. There are still two buildings remaining, one the old living quarters with much of the interior intact, if a little weather beaten and the other building the old storehouse that has been maintained to provide an emergency shelter complete with bunks, stove, etc plus some basic supplies that have been left by passing boats. The walls are covered with the names of boats that have passed this way, many of them and their skippers known to me. Phil used his artistic skills to draw a picture of Novara and we also added our names to the new visitor book that was put here last year by our friend David Scott Cowper, a veteran of 6 NWP transits.
