The Movie: Tales and Trails of The Chilcotin, Bella Coola and Beyond

This is my story of riding a motorcycle to some of the most extraordinary country on the planet.

Several years ago, I accidentally stumbled on an incredible land known as the Chilcotin. It is magical place of beauty and history. The area contains not only huge rivers and mountains but also contains some of the largest ranches in North America and is home to one of the densest populations of Grizzly bears in Canada. This is the land of the Tsilhqot'in 1st Nations people; a land where one can see true cowboys; a land rich in spirit and adventure. Because of its sparse population, lack of paved roads (you will not find strip malls out here and even petro is sparse) a trip to the Chilcotin is always an adventure and more than that, it is a spiritual affair. 

This video provides my firsthand experience of riding a motorcycle through lowland rain forests, high mountain plateaus, glaciated peaks, wild rivers, crystal clear lakes, arid deserts, high passes and life at the edge of a continent. There is a lifetime of exploration and adventure out there.

I hope you enjoy this slice of adventure from my perspective   ~GrizzLee


  1. Ran across one of your Youtube videos yesterday...Wow! You are living the life. Thank you for the time you spend documenting your trips. Do you ever publish your routes on a map?

  2. No routes published. I am now trying to include maps in my videos. Not as good, but it is a start. Thanks for the kind words. ~Grizz

  3. Thank you so much for letting me 'ride along'... what a fantastic journey... the destinations are a true bonus.

    1. You are very welcome. Glad you enjoyed my journey.
