Gelean Grove

Welcome to the Geleans' Grove in British Columbia, Canada!

We moved from the Lower Mainland of B.C. (New Westminster to be exact) and are now living in the gorgeous Bulkley Valley in Northern British Columbia! Wildlife, peace & quiet, friendly people, elbow room, what more could one ask? The photo above was taken between our home and our neighbour’s and I think she has a very intelligent face. In reality, she is hiding her youngster in the trees behind her.

Our home is partway up Hudson Bay Mountain west of Glacier Gulch facing the glacier and above Lake Kathlyn. Trees, mountains, fishing, wildlife, canoeing, hiking up to Twin Falls which come down from both sides of the glacier, and the glacier itself straight out our living room window!

We live in a living photo album on acreage, but near enough to the town of Smithers that any shopping needs can be fulfilled. The town itself enjoys a bit of Bavaria in its decor, with the ski hill just across the tracks at the south end of Main Street. Smithers is billed as a town for all seasons and it is certainly that.

We were also on the route and a celebration stopover for the 2010 Olympic Torch Run, exciting for young and old. Smithers also is fortunate in parks and trails which includes a Perimeter trail around the town. It is not unusual from fall to spring to see moose wandering around town. I will be adding links to this page as I come across them with more information.
