British Columbia

       

  Canada's western-most province styles itself as "Beautiful British Columbia", and for good reason.  Majestic mountains, dramatic fjords, dense rainforests, lovely lakes, and coastal variety

Here are photos from ten days visiting southern BC in May 2016.  Explorations include Vancouver, its harbour, Stanley Park, False Creek, English Bay, the Sea to Sky Highway along Howe Sound, the Burrard Inlet and the Indian Arm fjord, and Victoria and Vancouver Island.

The link to the Pictures File is below the Sample Images.  A Route Map and a Table of Contents are provided below that, both in on-screen and in printable forms.

Route Map

I flew in and out of Vancouver and rented a car for travel with a friend who lives in Vancouver.  After some sightseeing in Vancouver we took a driving trip up the Sea to Sky Highyway and a day cruise through Burrard Inlet and up the Indian Arm fjord.  We took a ferry to Victoria on Vancouver Island, drove up the inside coast, and returned by ferry from Nanaimo.

A package of printable maps is available if you wish paper copies to follow along. 
British Columbia 2016 Maps includes the route map shown below and a more detailed map of the Vancouver Area.
