Gingolx [2]

Evening scene in the picturesque fishing village of Gingolx (Kincolith), British Columbia, one of the four Nisga'a Nation villages that make up the Nass River Valley & coastal fjord Nass Bay.  The literal meaning of the town is "place of the skulls" when during invasion from an intruder the Gingolx won & place their enemies' skulls on sticks as warnings (Wikipedia).  As a settlement in 1867 founded by Christian missionaries, Kincolith housed modern European style buildings including a church visible in panorama built in 1879.  For awhile, one could only access the village by plane or boat until 2003 when an extended highway was paved.  While not in view, the village is less than 20km from the Alaska border to the west.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
