Smoke-free BC Canada



British Columbia is the westernmost of Canada and is famed for its natural beauty. The
capital of British Columbia is Victoria. The largest city is Vancouver, the third-largest
metropolitan area in Canada.
  

Cheakamus Lake in the Garibaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia
We climbed up and down for a half day on the mountain route to Cheakamus Lake. The trail
rolls up and down, but it is relatively flat. The first time to hike to the lake was in the summer of 1974.
It was a very unforgettable memory for me, and I once again tried to walk on the same trail route,
37 years after. This photograph was taken in June 2011.


Vancouver is a coastal city of British Columbia and ranks the third largest in the country. It had a population of
about 580,000 and its Metropolitan Area exceed 2.1 million people based on the 2006 census. Because of its location
on the Pacific Rim and the western terminus of the transcontinental highway and rail routes of Canada, Vancouver is
one of the nation's largest industrial centres.
