Skeena River

We arrived late in Prince Rupert, had a cappuccino at Cowpuccino’s Café and headed east toward Terrace. The drive through the Skeena Valley is spectacular with soaring peaks surrounding the wide, green-glacier colored river. In Terrace, we tried to catch some salmon and enjoyed the downtown restaurants. But, after a few days, we headed north to the Nass Valley. We drove through the Skeena Valley twice more; we drove back to Prince Rupert to catch the ferry to Haida Gwaii and then drove back to again drive to the Nass River.
