Our trip to British Columbia in Canada

One of our dreams has always been to take a trip into Canada. Well we finally made our trip on a three day weekend the last weekend in September, and it was incredible.

We went into Canada from Idaho, after driving the some pretty gorgeous country in Idaho, by Lake Pend Oreille and entered just north of Bonners Ferry into British Columbia in the Kootenay Rocky area. The Kootenay Lake, incredibly beautiful and right in view most all the time.

Come experience British Columbia, and the beauty of the Kootenay Rockies and Lake.

The Mountain you pass just before the border of Nelway, British Columbia - In Northern Idaho

The above image of the mountain you pass in Northern Idaho just before you get to the border at Nelway, British Columbia, Canada. This is in Idaho in what they call the Panhandle. Do you know why it is called the Panhandle? If you look at a map of Idaho you can see why, shaped like a pan, northern Idaho is the handle.

Arriving at the Canadian Border - We are so excited, it is just around the corner

We are almost there, so excited

Almost there, only 1500 feet to the border of Canada. We were so excited, finally going to see Canada. Something I have wanted to do as long as I can remember.

Thinkmetric - 50 mph = 80 kph - Watch out for "fast children"

Thinkmetric sign in Canada

We have to change our speed to metric, it is a good thing our odometer has metric reading too. I love the clever way they made their sign too. Notice how the "km" stands out, so clever!

I found a sign that I thought was kind of funny, sorry I didn't get a picture of it. But is said, Maximum speed 50 kph when "children are on road".

Their children must run fast!

Spectacular views along the drive - Untouched Mountains tall above us, with lush valleys below

The Mountain that took our breath away - The photo does not do it justice

We came up over a small hill and this view opened up. Everything had just been so lush and green, this spectacular sheer granite mountain so tall that it still had snow on it, was just incredible when it came into view. The photo does not do it justice at all as it literally took our breath away!


Readers: Have you been there before?

I'm in love with British Columbia in Canada, gorgeous and uncrowded. The traffic was pretty much none existent, just a few cars along the way. The fall colors were amazing!

Have you ever been to Canada?

Is it a place you would like to visit?

Have you been to Canada, if so where?

The Ferry Schedule - in British Columbia, Canada

We were pleasantly surprised to find out that all inland ferries in British Columbia are free! What a great country!

This was the ferry schedule. (photo below) They say the traffic is a lot heavier in the summer time, so there may be a bit of a wait. But when we went we got right on when the ferry arrived.


The Bench - I absolutely love this photo!

The following pictures were the view from the dock where the ferry comes in. I'm not sure that waiting in such a beautiful place could be much of an inconvenience if you do go during the summer.

Entering Nelson British Columbia - A beautiful fountain, in front of the fall colors.

Nelson was a beautiful city, that is not too far from the west dock we de-boarded at. There is a gorgeous bridge as you come into the town, but I didn't catch a picture of it. The whole town is set in the depths of those tree covered mountains, with the river running along it. What a incredible place it must be to live there.

These are some of the views in the city or township, and the drive along the way from the dock.

There was a parachuter that we saw too. We were wondering just where he planned on landing as there is nothing but trees as far as you can see in the area he was falling into!

After we left Canada and entered the state of Washington, the beautiful scenery did not stop. The pictures below are Boundry Lake, in Washington.

The border coming out of Canada was a lot stricter that the border coming into Canada. Which is probably a good thing for our security.

I hope you enjoyed our trip through British Columbia, Canada - Hotels in Canada

      Thank you everyone for your kind comments and support, I think I have made it to one lens of each of yours and left a little thank you for each of you in return! Bless you all! Linda

      cphillips, Thank you for your kindness about my photo's, I'm an amateur photographer and usually take pictures on the fly from the passenger seat. I'm thrilled when my co-pilot stops so I can really get a photo I desire. On our Canada trip it was so beautiful we stopped quite often to take in the gorgeous views! My camera I use is a Canon Digital EOS, most of those were taken with a 55 mm lens. I am no expert on camera's but for the amatuer I could definately recommend it, I use the 55 mm for distance and bought a 300 mm lens for zooming in animals. But thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!

      I grew up beautiful BC Interior, specifically Kamloops and Vernon - not as far north in BC as the Kootenays but equally as beautiful. When I toured my latest CD last year back home, I did get an interview by Kootenay Co-op Radio though. ;) I currently live in Toronto, Ontario Canada, a far stretch from the vast mountainous beauty of the land I call my true home.

      I LOVE that land more than anything. Thank you for posting such a beautiful appreciative lens about your visit there.

      Stunning lens and Congratulations on LOTD! We went to Canada a few years ago and it was just amazing, we loved it. You took some really beautiful photos. We intend to go back there again one day. One of our best times ever :)

      Thanks for showcasing our wonderful province! Nobody appreciates trees the way we do! I'm curious though, why you think that you need to keep your borders so secure from Canadians? Sure, we have a communist party, but nobody ever votes for them!

      Great lens!
