Kitimat BC

13 September 2009 - Sunday

Kitimat has been home to one of the world's largest smelters, as well as a pulp and paper mill and petrochemical manufacturer.

The town is in a scenic area of the coastal mountains, situated at the end of the Douglas Channel. There is an area along the river by the town that provides good riverside boondocking for the fishing enthusiasts.

After grocery shopping, dumping the tanks and filling with water, we headed north to Lakelse Lake Provincial Park. The campground attendant told us this was the last weekend the park was open for camping. Lots of good hiking in the park, and some interesting & colourful mushrooms.

It was too overcast and damp to get pictures of the park and area. Tazz, our high-energy puppy, broke her toe this evening while running along a boat ramp into the water.
