While most Canadians are wishing for the hot suns and beaches of the far south, we decided to go out and buy a canoe!
We live in an area of vast wilderness of trees, valleys, lakes, rivers. One fantastic area we have done some exploring in is the Creston Wildlife Management Area.
Here is what HelloBC has to say: “The Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area is an impressive 6,800 hectare (17,000 acre) Ramsar designated wetland habitat located 11 km west of Creston off Hwy 3. From May through Oct, Naturalists are on-site at the Wildlife Interpretation Centre to provide guided canoe & walking tours (May-Aug), special programs, trail maps & information.
Easy 24/7 access to 32 km of meandering dyke trails & 2 viewing towers provide opportunities to view some of the 400 species of wildlife that call this area home. Hiking, biking, bird watching, wildlife viewing, canoeing & fishing are some ways you can enjoy this amazing wetland area.”
There is also the Kootenay River that runs from the south end of the Kootenay Lake that can be followed right down to the border. These and many more places, including the trip to Yukon we are planning, are all on the list for our new canoe!
This is looking nothing like a canoe, but wait till you see it in action! Be tuned in for the set up, inaugural splash and reviews. Not to mention pictures of places we paddle.
