After a helicopter ride north from Vancouver, about 45 minutes of over the Discovery Islands, a dozen of us set down at the Sonora Resort on a recent trip. This is the only way it can be reached, via air or boat. No roads mar the pristine beauty of the deep red cedar, fir, pine and spruce forests here. How ironic, to be spoiled rotten in one of the most unspoiled places on earth.
