British Columbia has some of the most
diverse landscapes on earth.
is located in the Nass Valley region in
Because the Nisga'a do not have a written history,
the volcanic explosion is estimated to have occured
between 1750 and 1775.
This park is quite impressive, both in size (18,000 sq kms)
and in the sheer beauty of destruction.
The lava flow changed the coures of the
Nass and Tseax Rivers,
dammed a stream to make what is now Lava Lake,
and killed approximately 2,000 people.
Today the park contains waterfalls, lakes, pools
and some very impressive lava features
including lava tubes, tree molds, cinder cones and caves.
Definitely a place to put on your Must Visit
List in British Columbia.
