The Bella Coola Valley lies at the head of a 100km inlet in the BC Coast Mountains. Pacific Salmon run up the Bella Coola river to spawn, they also provide food for many animals and birds in the valley including Grizzly & black Bears, Bald eagles and kingfishers. Part of the valley is in the Tweedsmuir Provincial Park and is one of the best places in the Great Bear Rainforest to watch and photograph wildlife.

All of these images were taken in the Bella Coola valley where we stayed for the 2nd time at the excellent Suntree Guest Cottages . Stephen and Cheryl Waugh who run Suntree provide a peaceful base and invaluable local advice. Many thanks!
