Beyond Hope on a gold trail


Following the 1800s gold rush trail makes a fantastically fascinating journey up the Fraser IMGP5143Canyon, east of Vancouver BC.


Rich history, stunning scenery, and maybe a trace of gold dust!


Artifacts, early settler churches, all beside the steep-sided walls of the majestic swift Fraser River. History …Unfolding in the ‘once-goldbooming’ economic action centre of Yale BC…



Hudson’s Bay fur traders and Paddlewheelers, dancehalls and dusty roads with stagecoaches, all leave lasting prints in the arid canyon. A land of contrasts: First Nations ancient cultures.IMGP5105
