When I think BC I think nature. A couple of years ago my daughter and I took a road trip through the interior of BC. We enjoyed a wonderful leisurely VERY relaxing trip. We soaked in natural hot springs and camped in picturesque, clean well cared for campgrounds.
One of the highlights was Premier Lake just northeast of Cranbrook. The campground is tucked away alongside a pristine lake. On the southern tip of the lake and in the campground is a fish ladder. We were there around the 3rd week of June and although the fish migration was for the most part over. There were still an abundance of rainbow trout making their way up the man-made ladder and into the creek above. There were also eagles taking advantage of the 'easy' meal. Down by the lake we were mesmerized by the countless trout swimming around under the pier and leaping out of the water. This is a definite 'must-stop' for us from now on!!!
