Cornwall Hills Provincial Park

Cornwall Hills Provincial Park

According to the BC Ministry of Environment, Cornwall Hills Provincial Park is known for its “incredible bloom of wildflowers in July and August, encouraging visits from photographers and artists”. The flowers in the park and the nearby Three Sisters Recreation Site were indeed incredible (hundreds of lilies and paintbrushes at lower elevations and thousands of Polemonium pulcherrimum, or showy Jacob's ladder, in the subalpine), but they didn't seem to encourage visits. In a park of 1188 ha (nearly 3000 acres), my friend Chris and I encountered only one other person (a photographer) on a long weekend Sunday.

That is incredibly beautiful...

Yes, a gorgeous, heavenly place!

If only I had a "transporter" as they do on Star Trek --- I could transport myself there for an afternoon.


Distant snowy mountains??????????

Yes, there are snow-capped peaks in the distance. Part of the Coast Range of mountains.
