Lava beds and other reasons to love northern British Columbia.


Wandering quietly and cautiously down a small, stoney path, I am surrounded by dramatic lava beds that I didn’t know existed in Canada. It was here in the mid-1700’s that a volcanic eruption sent lava spewing out of a crater, down a creek bed and lake, through a valley and to the Nass River. Two thousand people were killed.
