Last summer I travelled the old Gold Rush Trail, starting in Lillooet and ending up in Barkerville. My route include Fish Rock, the West Pavilion Road, the Big Bar Ferry, the “Grand Canyon of the North” section of the Fraser canyon (via helicopter), the High Bar Indian Reserve, Cougar Point, Echo Valley Ranch and Spa, Clinton, the Fraser River near Williams Lake via jetboat, Wells and Barkerville.
A selection of the video interviews and landcapses I shot can be found by clicking on any of the links posted to YouTube, posted below.
