On a Fine November Day

(please click on the images for better viewing)

Last week we drove up to historic Fort St. James and had a very pleasant walk under a magnificent autumn sky.

Situated on Lakeshore Drive is Our Lady of Good Hope Church (right) which was built in 1873. The small log cabin to the left of this pretty wooden church was where Father Morice, an Oblate missionary priest who arrived in Fort St. James in 1885, printed the Carrier prayer books and a Carrier language newspaper.

Another view of the log cabin in its picturesque setting.
