A blog about life in the Bella Coola Valley and the Central Coast area of British Columbia for anyone interested in an incredible and rich part of BC's coast. I hope to provide my thoughts about things as simple as weather observations and seasonal issues, to comments about life and the natural history in the Bella Coola Valley, the Central Coast and the west Chilcotin area.

For those readers not familiar with the Bella Coola Valley, here is a map. The Bella Coola Valley is in Western Canada, the Province of British Columbia. Find Vancouver, go north about 400 km along the Coast Mountains towards Prince Rupert and you will run into the Bella Coola Valley. The road access is east to Williams Lake, summer ocean access is via BC Ferries from Port Hardy on the Discovery Coast Route. There is daily air service from Vancouver International Airport with Pacific Coastal Airlines. If you put this lat/long (52 22.291 -126 45.120) into the 'Fly To' box in Google Earth, you will be in the village of Bella Coola which is located at the western terminus of the Bella Coola Valley.
