Exploring the Kitimat-Stikine Area By Car
The trip in my trusty (and rusty) little Dixie:
Leave Kitimat Sunday morning
Run some errands and fuel up in Terrace
Head north on the Nisg'a highway (hwy 113)
Head east towards Cranberry Junction from Gitlaxtaadmix (New Ayansh)
Hang a left towards the modern day ghost town of Kitsault (64 km's along a bumpy dirt road from the turnoff)
Hike 3.5 km's into Kitsault at the gate
Hike back out and drive to Stewart, BC / Hyder, Alaska
Stay overnight, then drive back "home" to Kitimat on Monday.
All in all an amazing trip!!!
950 km's total and some stunning scenery and wildlife
12 black bears
2 grey foxes
1 black wolf
One spirit bear, aka Kermode bear
