The Xeni Gwet’in Wagon Trip continues en route to Williams Lake.

Last Friday elders and youth embarked on the week-long journey, departing from Konni Lake Beach in Nemiah Valley.

Travelling by horseback, wagon and iron horse, the expedition is the sixth annual, first initiated by Jimmy and June Lulua.

In addition to Jimmy, Roy and Gwen Mulvahill, Randy and Christy Saugstad, and Wilfred and Betty Anderson are the main drivers.

Today, Wednesday, the riders will depart from Sugar Cane Jacks to Farwell Canyon, and on Thursday they will travel to Meldrum Creek.

On Friday they will travel to Williams Lake, arriving in time for the second rodeo performance of the Stampede.
