Showcasing British Columbia

Country Lanes of British Columbia


Traditionally constructed by the
Inuit peoples of Northern Canada,
Inukshuk are figures made from
piled stones or boulders.

They can be used to mark 
an important event, as an aid in directional
navigation, mark food caches
or as place markers.
The oldest known Inukshuk 
can be found on Canada's Baffin Island
and dates back 3,000 years. 

Now used by modern man
as a symbol of "I was here"
they have taken on a unique Canadian twist.
  Lining creek and river
beds, along seawalls and waterways,
they are a peaceful and gentle way of 
honoring the footsteps of the traveler
that came before.
