Kayak (Canada) - - BACKYARD HISTORY -

Also known as the Nisga’a Memo­rial Lava Bed Park, this park north of Ter­race, B.C., is on the spot where lava flowed from a vol­cano around 1700. It filled the val­ley, push­ing the Nass River off course and de­stroy­ing vil­lages. Tra­di­tional sto­ries say 2,000 Nisga’a peo­ple died. You can visit the area’s lava cones on a guided tour.
