Lillooet Lake, Pemberton Valley, British Columbia, Canada 06

Description : The community of Skatin First Nations (or Skookumchuck) is located on the east side of the Lillooet River, on the 19-Mile Post of the old Harrison-Lillooet wagon road (about 35 kilometres from the head of Harrison Lake). Before the arrival of European settlers, this community was considered to be the largest on the lower Lillooet River, comparable in size to the pre-contact village of present-day Mount Currie (or Lilwat,ul).

St. Agnes Well hot springs on the Lillooet road was used by the native people of the area for thousands of years, were described by the gold miners as “the only free pleasure in British Columbia.” Reached halfway through the trip, the springs allow visitors a hot bath just when they need it most. Another highlight is a visit to Skookumchuck, a small native village of 20 to 50 people that once housed 350.
