Here's a Gmap4 embedded map showing the area. Switch to Satellite mode and zoom out to see the same view as above.

Not all that much happens in that area. Are we talking about a disaster? Another lost bomb, maybe?

If you had a border collie there, would you know exactly where he should patrol?

Sheesh! With all that white in the satellite picture, I was looking for some shoreline with glaciers involved. Is it tropical coral that makes the satellite view so light?

I believe so. One thing I did learn in digging up that picture:

Far be it from me to dispute that.

Nevertheless, I can produce a post-1938 story about a lost US nuclear bomb in which Stewart-Hyder plays a important role.

But if you want to provide the real solution, be our guest.

laugh I'll let the border collie tell the real story. All I found was that maybe some RCMP found aliens bodies in a nearby cave, and or a nearby avalanche disaster. No royalty involved though. A lot has happend in BC but nothing in this part of BC that I can find.

The avalanche was my candidate until I found the lost bomb story. But royalty seemed to be lacking.

73 looks like the impression left by the aircraft that had Jabba the Hut and Princess Laya in the final movie of the first set of three Star Wars 5 I believe.

73: This is not yet another coal-fired power station stack under construction. It is unique - in the world.

The airfield is named after a marine major. The event(s) occured during November, awhile ago.

I don't know. But there is a lot of yellow to the west.
