1967 Canoe race display

The longer you stay, the greater your chance of experiencing more ways this place is special. Perhaps you will witness an Indigenous elder leading a sacred teaching or stoking the fire for a sweat lodge. Or an archaeologist will unearth an ancient artifact. Coyotes yip while the full moon rises over the river. Stay awhile, let Rocky surprise you.
