Best Places to Visit in BC, Kootenay Lake

Kootenay Lake is 90 miles long
and bounded by the Selkirk Mountain range
on the west and the Purcell range to the east.
It is part of the Kootenay river system
that drains in to the Columbia River.
The whole area around Kootenay Lake
is incredibly beautiful and has a wild,
waiting-to-be-explored feeling to it.
Small towns dot her shores, many with
well kept historic buildings, paddle wheelers,
and heaps of history.
Kootenay Lake is also
home to the famous Kokanee salmon,
not to be confused with the famous Kokanee
Taking the time to explore and savor the
whole area could take a life time.
I am working on it.

Karen, You are right, Kootenay Lake is spectacular. While we lived up there we spent a lot of time in, on, or around the lake.
Kokanee is really good eating too!

Thanks Robin. You were lucky to have lived in such a beautiful part of BC and had the chance to explore it on a daily basis.
