100 Mile House, Attractions

We were astounded by the Painted Chasm just south of 100 Mile House. It seemed
like a painting, yet its vastness reminded us of a smaller version of the Grand
Canyon. It showed us the diversity in geography available throughout BC, but
especially in the Cariboo area. The colourful layers of volcanic sediments were an
exciting detail within the rock bed that displayed the power of the volcanoes and
glaciers that formed this ancient land. It really did take our breath away!
Excellent hidden gem…cheerio!
