Throughout the backroads of the Chilcotin the Xeni Gwet’in young wagon riders from Nemiah have been headed to Williams Lake for Stampede Weekend.
Undetered by the weather conditions the group has even foraged rivers on their way to town.
The riders are expected to arrive in town coming down the hill on Highway 20 sometime Friday.
The 5th annual Xeni Gwet’in Youth Wagon Trip left Nemiah Valley Friday and have since trotted their way through mud and muck, backroads and even foraged rivers.
Outriders on horseback and the wagons will be traveling from Farwell Canyon to Meldrum Creek today and along Highway 20 into town sometime Friday.
Drivers are encouraged to watch out for the riders and slow down when passing them.
