Alex in the Kitlope

A lush meadow with purple and green foliage in front of snowy mountains and a blue sky.

“Over the next few days, we continued toward our destination – Kitlope Lake. We were taught about the history of the land along the way, stopping at old village sites and canneries, waterfalls, inlets and estuaries. We learned about the significance of rice root, a native flower who’s root looks like grains of rice. We saw holes that grizzlies had made to dig up the rice root. The lupine was in full bloom, adding purple to the vibrant blues and greens of the estuaries. Bear tracks, moose tracks, marbled murrelets, golden eye, eagles, gulls, mergansers and more provided the natural history and showed us how rich the place is.” ⠀
