It has taken Mother Nature millions of years to carve out the jagged peaks of the Coast Mountains; creating hidden valleys to explore, waterfalls and roaring creeks and sweet mountain springs to drink.
To top it off she sprinkled over the land lush grasses and multi-coloured wildflowers, she inhabited it with the Grizzly Bear, Mountain Goat, Moose, and the Mule Deer. She filled the rivers and lakes with thousands of fish and the sky with millions of stars.
The Chilko is wild, remote and fairly isolated. It is a land peopled by those with a strong sense of independence, strength of character, good humor, and a lot of determination. A land of log cabins and wood smoke, snake fences and pick-up trucks, slower time zones, and a never empty coffee pot. Seldom visited and largely untouched, the Chilko is like a rare gem.
Few people have discovered it, but once discovered, it is rarely forgotten. There are a few areas in the world as beautiful to explore.
