    Sir Alexander Mackenzie is considered one of the greatest of all North American travelers. Two hundred and fourteen years ago, Mackenzie and his crew found a fur trading route from Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabasca to the Pacific Ocean. They paddled the Fraser River, crossed the interior plains of the Chilcotin Plateau using Carrier and Nuxalk guides, and traveled down the Bella Coola River. This journey was the first recorded 6,400 km crossing of the North American continent. In September of 2012, eight of us paddled from the beautiful Tweedsmuir Park Lodge on the banks of the Atnarko River, down the Bella Coola River and into the Pacific Ocean at Bella Coola townsite. The spectacular scenery, epic weather and wildlife and some action on the river kept us in high spirits for the whole 3-day, 2-night voyage. http://www.tweedsmuirparklodge.com/
