Sir Alexander Mackenzie Provincial Park

Sir Alexander Mackenzie Provincial Park is a small coastal park near Elcho Harbour on Dean Channel. The park is located at the westernmost point in the journey of Alexander Mackenzie where, in reddish paint made of vermilion and bear grease, he wrote on a rock: “Alex Mackenzie from Canada by land 22nd July 1793.” The rock, near the water’s edge, still bears his words, which were permanently inscribed in the rock later by surveyors.
