Thorsen Creek Petroglyphs, Bella Coola, British Columbia, Canada 17

Description : Bella Coola is home to the Nuxalk Nation, a tribe that in recent years has made international headlines with its struggle against clearcut logging on its ancestral lands. Bella Coola sits on the edge of the Great Bear Rainforest. Well-marked hiking trails invite short excursions or multiple day hikes through one of the earth,s largest remaining tracts of temperate rainforest. The area is also home to the elusive, pure white spirit bear, a rare albino variety of the American black bear, considered sacred by the Nuxalk.

Probably the most impressive attraction in Bella Coola is the collection of petroglyphs located near downtown.
