Morice Canyon, Moricetown,
British Columbia, Canada
July 23, 2015

Moricetown is a Wet'suwet'en village in Central British Columbia, Canada on the west side of the Bulkley River on Coryatsaqua (Moricetown) Indian Reserve No. 2, and on Moricetown Indian Reserve No. 1. The current village was built during the early 1900s. Evidence of inhabitants date back to around 4,000 years ago. The original name of the village was 'Kyah Wiget. It was renamed for the pioneer missionary Father Adrien-Gabriel Morice. Below: Sign and museum.

A great view point is located right along highway 16 on the east side of Moricetown. and there is a parking lot where the two RV Gypsies stopped to have a look. This is the place where rivers meet and the waters rush. From up top, the two RV Gypsies watched men fishing way down below. Then the two RV Gypsies drove around the corner and over a bridge for a different look at the same thing. They were able to walk down close to the water and were quite amazed at the sound of the rushing water. The two RV Gypsies were intrigued to watch the people of Moricetown catch salmon in nets and watched the fish try to jump upstream.

Moricetown Canyon and Bulkley River Bulkley River

The high canyon shoreline of the Bulkley River provided many opportunities for the two RV Gypsies to view the canyon from up high and from down low. After crossing the wooden bridge over the canyon to the opposite shore of the highway, and taking the short trail down to the edge of the river, they spent hours watching the most impressive part of the unrehearsed, natural show of nature; the incredible acrobatics of the fish as they leaped out of the water trying to find a way past the rushing water.
