The lower Skeena River on British Columbia’s North Coast was line www.cartierlovebracelet.co cartier love bracelet

Historic Canyons, Railways and Reaction Ferries

Many Prince cartier love bracelet fake
George residents have lived in this cartier love bracelet area for a long time but have never explored in their own backyard.  Here bracelets is a perfect opportunity cartier replica to learn about our history and view some of the most iconic historical sites in the region.  Reaction ferries, Canyons, Railways, Goat Island, Bollards, Rapids, and hopefully some local wildlife will replica cartier make this a memorable trip!

Reaction Ferry
The tour will commence with a 30 minute jet boat ride up the Nechako River to the site of the Miworth Reaction Ferry. In Miworth two hulls of the ferry still remain, plus a wooden derrick tower. This ferry operated from 1922 to the mid 1940’s. Reaction ferries were common in the interior for crossing many of our river systems. The ferries consist of two pontoon hulls and a cable across the river. The energy of the river current is used to angle the pontoons across the river. Don’t miss this opportunity to visit this historic site.

Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Bridge
From the Miworth Reaction Ferry site, we will journey to the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Bridge. This iconic Prince George feature is over 100-years old and is still the longest railway bridge in B.C. While viewing the Bridge from below, Jeff will provide a historic perspective of the bridge. On this stretch of our journey a stop will also be made at Goat Island, where this island’s contribution to the building of the GTP Railway Bridge and the stories of Jim Johnson’s goat farm will be told.

Fort George Canyon
The last destination on our tour is Fort George Canyon cartier love bracelet
where the sternwheelers of the early 1900’s attempted to navigate and winch themselves through the rock outcropped islands and fast cartier bracelets flowing rapids and whirlpools of this narrow pass in the Fraser River. We will learn and experience cartier nail bracelet replica
why it was so difficult to bring these boats through this extremely treacherous section of the river. Don’t miss this chance to experience the rich history of our local rivers!

Webb Bennett – Kitselas Canyon Historic Site on the Skeena River

cartier jewelry replica provided by the curator Webb Bennett.

Webb is a wealth of knowledge and can tell you anything about the history cartier bracelets of the area.  He shares his knowledge and shows us the sites as we wind along a path through the beautiful hemlock forest.  He talks about the totem poles and longhouses and how totems fake cartier bracelets
are a way for the Kitselas and other fake cartier bracelets
first nations to tell their stories as their history isn’t written down anywhere. The experience at the site is hands on as Webb  mentions cartier nail bracelet replica
“It’s a living cultural centre”.  The tour of the longhouses greatly benefits bracelet replica cartier from this belief as the participants can hold and touch the various items on display to get a better feel of the work that went into making them.

We visit the Kitselas Canyon Historic site on a few of our tours.

Grizzly Bear Stalking

On our Northwest BC Grizzly cartier love bracelet fake
Bear Discovery bracelets tour we use jet boat son a few of the days to travel on the ocean to remote coastal estuaries that are filled with thick carpets of Lyngby Sedge.  We use jet boats so that we can maneuver through all the side channels and that intertwine amongst the estuary.  The shallow draft of the jet boat allows us to pole or use electric motors to slowly stalk and maneuver the boat into position to see the bears without scaring them.  We know the bears come out every day to feed so sometimes its just a matter cartier love bracelet replica of time before they decide to show themselves.  At the end of the bear viewing day we then use the louder jet boat engines to cruise cartier love necklace of the river cartier nail bracelet replica

Adventure Tour Guide Fred Seiler

Many of our Adventure Tours through Continuing Studies focus on accessing remote and rarely visited sites and to do this we utilize Jet Boats.  Running replica cartier love bracelet a jet boat with guests who are relying on their guide to bring them back safely after each days adventure requires someone with a vast amount of experience and skill.  For our tours in Northwest BC we utilize the services of Fred Seiler who has thousands of hours of jet boating and experience exploring the rivers of this magnificent region.  His past experience in delivering eco tours and commercial jet boat services is invaluable.  Fred also cartier nail bracelet replica
teaches a Jet Boat cartier love bracelet
safety course for us and has also taught me a vast amount about the safe driving of jet boats and shared all kinds of information cartier love bracelet fake
about areas to explore cartier love necklace and adventure in Northwest BC.  Here are a  few photos of Fred in action on our tours.

Grizzlies and Lyngby Sedge

For coastal fake cartier bracelet Grizzly Bears bracelet replica cartier one of the most important spring food sources is the Lyngby sedge (Carex lyngbyei).  This sedge grows in the intertidal zone and can tolerate fresh and salt water. The bears feast on this replica cartier abundant spring vegetation because of its high crude protein content as it contains 25% raw protein. One of the easiest ways to determine a Grizzly Bears activity in an area is to look at the tops of the Lyngby Sedge.  If they are flat on the top instead of pointed then this would indicate cartier nail bracelet replica
cartier love bracelet fake
that a bear has eaten the tops off.  The next step is too see if the tops are still green which would indicate that the bear has just recently eaten the sedge or is there a brown stain or color to the top which indicates that some time cartier bracelet
has passed since the bear ate them.

The estuaries and coastline with sedges in the  spring months are definitely cartier love necklace areas where one would begin to look for Grizzly Bears as they begin their summer long process of fattening up.

To see these bears in their natural habitat feeding in a sea of green sedge our UNBC “Northwest BC Grizzly Bear Discovery Tour” is an excellent way to visit very remote locations and watch bracelets these magnificent creatures photograph them.  June 6-10, 2017 starting in Terrace, BC
