It has come to my attention that I might be scaring some of my faithful blog readers and in particular scaring them from visiting the beautiful Bella Coola Valley!
Take for example one of my readers at the Spotted Dog Ranch Blog. Chinle writes and photographs about a fantastic and beautiful area of the state of Utah. In one of the recent posts, it appears like they might like to visit the Bella Coola Valley, but aren't too sure about "The Hill".
I've made a few posts that mention "The Hill" and thrown in the odd picture, but nothing that should scare anyone from taking a leisurely drive into Bella Coola...but the folks at the Spotted Dog Ranch are looking for some "Hill" stories to convince them that visiting would be good (at least not dangerous on the hill). Did you or your family help build the Hill? Or maybe you are a trucker or professional driver that can offer an opinion or advice. Maybe you just have a few unique thoughts or good advice about The Hill. How about what The Hill means as Bella Coola's lifeline and place in it's history?
So bring em on! Funny ones, scary ones, short ones, long ones. Post them in the comments anonymously or post your name if you want. I'll publish a selection of them as a posts-- let's make this the greatest online source of Bella Coola Hill stories on the net! Grizzly
