We are up early in Ginglox and say our goodbyes to Lavina. It has been a wonderful and emotional visit to a place that I only knew of in stories. But now 3 generations have experienced what the other 3 had loved. Mission accomplished.

As we head out on the 28km Kincolith Highway extension some locals...

We have arrived in Gingolx. The twisting road that brought us here has diminished the appetite of some of our group of 5. But the first thing we see is a Seafood restaurant,  "U" Seefood "U" Eat It! but our host is cooking dinner so we save our appetite. The sense of peace and isolation is immediate...

It never fails, the best things in life are sometimes right in our own backyard. I grew up in Prince Rupert hearing stories about Kincolith, Greenville, and New Aiyansh from my dad.

As a a Cannery Kid growing up in Prince Rupert,  I really never wanted to be a line worker in the Fish Cannery.

I asked a couple of friends if they'd be...

The exposed beams laddered across the ceiling, hung with ropes and large metal pulleys. As the sun streamed...

Tree-planting was not something I had ever considered doing until the day my boyfriend and I found ourselves unemployed at the same time.  In April of 1986 Dennis** had just graduated from university with a bunch of letters after his name and I just quit a job I hated.  A college friend had told us...
