West Chilcotin is a high plateau surrounded by mountain ranges.
The Coastals to the west and south, the Rainbows
to the north, and the Itcha/Ilgachuz ranges to the north and east
among many more ranges. Mt. Waddington, or
Mystery Mountain as it was once called, is the highest mountain
in British Columbia entirely within her borders at 13,704 ft.
The mountains, covered in a mantle of snow in clear, magnifying
winter air makes you feel as though you can reach out and touch
In summer, the alpine abounds with wildlife both big and small.
In any season, they enhance the view no

photographers, snowmobilers, and trailriders.
Unfortunately, we so take them for granted that I don't have pictures
that could begin to describe their beauty and diversity.
