PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

A small inuksuk found on the shores of the river.

 

Inukshuk, means "in the likeness of a human" in the Inuit language. They are made of unworked stones that are used by the Inuit for communication and survival. The traditional meaning of the inukshuk is "Someone was here" or "You are on the right path."

 

---------------------------------------------

Plaisance Falls, are located about five kilometres north of the village of Plaisance. An exceptional natural and historic site, for over a century, the falls were the site of a thriving mill town known as North Nation Mills.

 

In its heyday in the late 1800s, North Nation Mills boasted over 300 residents. Most of them worked at the large sawmill that was powered by the raging torrent of the Plaisance Falls. The village that grew up around the mill had a general store (owned by the mill), churches, a schoolhouse, a cheese factory -- all kinds of activity, in fact. But all of that is gone now; and the site is virtually a ghost town.
