active fishing

Coyote jumping back and forth from bank to bank to create the ledges for people to use for fishing. Thousands of years old as a gathering site for native peoples from around the Interior, active fishing site with fish drying racks (wind-dried salmon is a local delicacy). *'''Bridge River Canyon and Terzahgi Dam''', 20 miles up the scenic Moha Road along the lower Bridge River, a ten-mile double-horseshoe gorge over 5000' deep, rivalling Yosemite, its upper end is Terzaghi Dam, which diverts the Bridge River through Mission Mountain to penstocks to powerhouses on Seton Lake. The drive over Mission Mountain involves a 3500' switchbacked descent to Shalalth and Seton Portage; accommodations and food available, also another rougher route out via the 'High Line', a former powerline road now a provincial highway, to D'Arcy, Mt Currie-Pemberton and Whistler. Continuing along the reservoir (Carpenter Lake) from Terzaghi Dam brings you to the goldfields towns of Gold Bridge and Bralorne, and resorts around Tyaughton Lake and Gun Lake. Continuing on, the main road leads to Pemberton Meadows and Whistler via Railway Pass. *'''Seton Lake''', spectacular fjord-like lake at the western end of town, popular beach and amazing towering cliffs, refreshments available. At the nearby campground, operated by BC Hydro and free to the public, there are old stone ovens built by Chinese gold miners in the 1870s. Boat tours of the lake (which is even more scenic from out on the water), water skiing opportunities. Seton Lake was part of the Douglas Trail, which led from steamers at Harrison Lake to Lillooet, which was a muster-ground for packers and wagon trains north to the Cariboo goldfields. 30,000 men traversed this route in the summer of 1859. *'''Cayoosh Park''', on the heights above the main part of downtown, formerly the site of Lillooet's famous hanging tree. Not much to see now other than a great view. BMX track and largely-unused outdoor checkerboard. *'''Old Suspension Bridge'''. Built in 1911, now decommissioned but open to foot bike traffic, 1911-vintage suspension bridge that for decades was the town's only road access to the outside world. At the mouth of Lillooet Canyon, a rough-water gorge between the Fishing Grounds at Six Mile and this spot, where the Fraser opens wider onto gold-bearing bars in front of town. *'''the West Side Road'''. South to Lytton along shady benches and old ranches and farms, slow going but very scenic, connects to a traction cable ferry to Lytton. North to Big Bar Ferry, from the Bridge River Bridge, a spectacular drive but carry water and food and respect private property; a main road leads back from Big Bar Ferry to Jesmond and Kelly Lake, near Clinton; rough four-by-four roads lead back west over China Head Mountain to the head of the Yalakom River and return to Lillooet via Moha lower Bridge River, or across the alpine to descend into the Bridge River Country via Tyaughton Lake. Pack gas and water and spare tires repair kits. *'''Marble Canyon''' and '''Pavilion Lake''' - on Highway 99 towards Cache Creek, a 3500' deep karst formation with glistening limestone wall towering over the short but impressive valley between Pavilion and the rangeland at Upper Hat Creek. The Pavilion Valley includes a series of lakes, the largest of which, Pavilion Lake, is a NASA xenobiology research site due to its unusual "fresh water coral" formations. Provincial campground requires reservations (online). Do * Wikipedia: Lillooet, British Columbia

main population

and it often vies with Lytton (Lytton, British Columbia) and Osoyoos for the title of "Canada's Hot Spot" on a daily basis in summer. History and culture thumb Welcome sign outside Lillooet. (File:LillooetBritish Columbia.JPG) Lillooet is an important location in Aboriginal history and culture and remains one of the main population centres of the St'at'imc (Lillooet Nation), and today it is one of the southernmost communities in North America where indigenous people form the majority. Just over 50 per cent of the people in Lillooet and area are St'at'imc. First Nations communities assert the land as traditional territory since time immemorial. Considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited locations on the continent, the area is reckoned by archaeologists to have been inhabited for several thousand years. The immediate area of the town attracted large seasonal and permanent populations of native peoples because of the confluence of several main streams with the Fraser and also because of a rock-shelf just above the confluence of the Bridge River which is an obstacle to migrating salmon. Many archaeological and heritage sites are in the vicinity of the town, including Keatley Creek Archaeological Site, one of the largest ancient pit house communities in the Pacific North West. This rock shelf, known in gold rush times as the Lower Fountain, was reputedly made by the trickster Coyote, leaping back and forth across the river to create platforms for people to catch and dry fish on.
