Tip 38: Visit B.C.'s Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed Provincial Park

"It is just a wonderful sight any time of the year. October, I think is one of the nicest times with the changing of the leaves. But any season has its own beauty. There are four villages to explore in the Nisga’a Nation; Gitlax'aamiks (New Ayiansh) the seat of Governmet for the Nation. Gitwinksihlkw (Canyon City) with a suspension bridge to cross over the Nass River. Laxgaits'ap and (Greenville) and Gingolx (Kincolith), the end of the Valley were it meets the sea. There are many things to do and explore, check their website, and plan your trip. It is well worth the visit." - Member Barry
