Northern BC, a region larger than California, comprises mostly untouched wilderness. The region is know for its incredible parks, wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking. This week’s guestagrammer, @brandonbroderick, is sharing some of his favourite Northern BC photos.

“The drive to Stewart is very scenic and beautiful, and it’s even more impressive during the fall when the colours change.”

“In late summer, the wildflowers bloom in the alpine, seen here with Salmon Glacier near Stewart. This massive glacier is accessed by driving through the small town of Hyder, Alaska, so be sure to bring a valid passport.”

“Kleanza Creek Provincial Park is a beautiful spot located only 20 minutes east of Terrace, and is a must-see if you’re in the area.”
