The Chilcotin abounds with wild, high, and remote, alpine lakes surrounded by glaciated mountains and hillsides full of wildflowers. Many can only be reached by flying, hiking or trail riding in to them. As a result, this wilderness is some of the most pristine in the world.

The Coastal Range is classified as a relatively new mountain range geologically speaking. Glaciers are one of Mother Nature's most powerful tools and shaped much of the North American Continent. Glacier melt feeds the lakes and rivers in the valleys and forms the small alpine lakes cradled in bowls or tarns high in the peaks. The Monarch Icefields are a favorite on the flightseeing route. It can be reached for hiking or skiing by very fit adventurers.

Mid summer is the time to get up into the high country and see a vast array of wildflowers that you may never see anywhere else. Many are rare or only grow at these elevations and will never be seen in a garden. At these high altitudes, the flowers have a very short season and so whole hillsides of many different species will all bloom at once.
