INTRODUCTION

British Columbia Waterfalls span this mountainous province from its wet temperate climate in the west shared with our Pacific Northwest across the US border to the Canadian Rockies dominating its mountainous east side bordered with Alberta.

In BC, there's a dynamic range of lifestyles and landscapes from the cosmopolitan coastal city of Vancouver to more rural back-to-nature places near waterfalls like Clearwater. It's got world class skiing at Whistler Mountain as well as the lovely Victoria Island.

But our experience so far has been limited to the eastern side of the province encompassing the Yoho National Park area, Mt Robson, and the tranquil yet waterfall-laced valley north of Clearwater.

The Yoho National Park subregion pretty much consists of the waterfalls throughout the eastern part of the state along the Canadian Rockies bordering with Alberta. We're also including any waterfalls that are within this mountain range that also happens to lie outside the Yoho National Park boundary to the south. Perhaps the most dramatic waterfalls in this region include the towering Takakkaw Falls and the wide Wapta Falls.

The Mt Robson subregion pretty much is the area of the Canadian Rockies west of Jasper (but not within the provincial boundaries of Alberta). The Mt Robson Provincial Park area was pretty much where we saw waterafalls here, such as Overlander Falls.

The Clearwater subregion lies further to the west of the Yoho subregion. In addition to the area surrounding the town of Clearwater, the primary reserve housing the waterfalls here is Wells-Gray Provincial Park. Amongst the waterfalls found in this park are the gushing Helmcken Falls, the wide , the precipitous Spahats Falls.

We do expect to return to British Columbia for more waterfalling visits so our survey of what we've seen so far will surely be augmented in the near future...
