Canyon City, or Gitwinksihlkw, is one of the Nass Valley villages. It is home to a 400 year old suspension bridge. Up until 17 years ago this bridge was the only way in and out of the city. The bridge is just over a metre wide; therefore the only access was by foot. That meant the people living within the city would have had to carry anything they had across, meaning groceries, furniture, and any other necessities they had needed. The bridge is now restored, so if you have the time, feel free to check it out, along with the beautiful view of the river it comes with, and the 25 foot totem poles inside the city.
