Thanks Glen! That's a shame for many because I know they have planned trips to the north island expressly for getting to Cape Scott, but at least people are forewarned. (Wish I'd had the advance notice when we got to the Umista Cultural Centre a few years ago to discover the collection had been loaned to a museum in Germany! There we were in Alert Bay looking at German artifacts. It was bizarre....)

Is the San Josef road still closed? I tried it during the summer and had to turn back.
