Wooden chandelier, Northern Rockies Lodge

Northern Rockies Lodge, Muncho Lake - chandelier

Chandelier at Northern Rockies Lodge on Muncho Lake, Northern BC. Wooden rounds each hole-sawn to house a pot light. It was really quite beautiful.

The lodge is on the Alaska Highway that stretches from Dawson Creek BC to Alaska. It was built in 1942 at the request of the US government, worried about Russia during World War II. The Americans supplied all the labour. It changed the entire region instantly.
