Hi everyone!

Here is what we've done in the last few days. Enjoy!
Our route has been: Prince Rupert then to Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed Provincial Park then to Stewart/Hyder (short hwy into Alaska #37A-a must see), then north to Whitehorse, Yukon! There were a few stops in between of course! A big thank you to Todd and Jillian for their hospitality in Whitehorse!
All we can say is that the views up here are stunning and breathtaking! See photos.

I write this from the ferry docks in Skagway, Alaska (pics to follow when I can download them).

In Nisga'a Memorial Lava bed Prov Park, we hiked thru the lava rocks which expand 26 km and killed 2000 Nisga'a people around 300 years ago. Our guides were local Nisga'a guys that did a wonderful job telling us stories of the eruption and their use of local animals and plants, and legends that keep their culture alive. A must see! (note the lichen now growing on the lava rocks beside us)
