Potato Range

Last weekend while at Tatlayoko Lake (3 hours from Bella Coola in the Chilcotin, south of Tatla Lake), we did a day hike in the southern end of the mountains called Potato Range.  They lay along the east side of Tatlayoko Lake.  There is a north end trail and and a south end trail.  We accessed them from the south end trail by using the trail that starts at Bracewell's Alpine Wilderness Adventures.  The people at the lodge were kind enough to point out the way for us.  After about 3 hours we were in the alpine and had wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.
The Potato Range are old and have fossils in many areas that are easy to find.  The Potato Range are so named because they are a source of harvesting small tubers from a plant that the First Nations in the area use.  It would be nice to spend about three days hiking the Potato Range next time.
