June 12 & 13

Prince Rupert was our furthermost destination.  Now we will back track a bit and travel back to Hazelton 175 miles. Here we stayed at the K'san Historical Village and living museum of the Gitxsan people.  To get there we crossed the Hagwilget Suspension Bridge; a single lane bridge, one of North America's highest suspension bridges.  The bridge passes over a canyon over the Bulkley River which then goes into the Skeena River.  Here we were able to tour the Gitxsan village and see several of the restored tribal houses.

The confluence of the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers, muddy still from the high water they had this spring

The single lane suspension bridge

We had a wonderful tour, however we were not allowed to take pictures inside.  Well worth stopping for a night or two and then take the tour.  Great gift shop also.

While we were here we also took a drive out to several villages and saw many totem poles

Safe travels to all
