Best Places to See in BC - Shalalth

Shalalth, British Columbia
is today one of the communities
of the
Seton Lake Band
of the Lillooet Nation.

Shalalth has gone through a number of
changes in her lifetime.
Part of British Columbia's Gold Rush history
and the Douglas Trail, she was later
an Oblate mission in the late 1800's.
Becoming known as "the Mission",
the term still exists today as the
mountain pass between Seton and Carpenter Lakes.
(see map)

Today, Shalalth is home to the
Bridge River Power Project.
Three dams, four powerhouses
and a dam all make up this huge project.
I had no idea.

During WW II Shalalth
was used to inter Japanese-Canadians.
