The Interior

The interior of British Columbia contains many lakes where diving is a popular pastime. During the gold rush days, barges, tugs and passenger ships found their final resting places in the interior lakes and now attract many local divers. There are also a few railroad locomotives that ended up in various lakes.

Several lakes are staging areas for the annual migration of millions of salmon as they make their way back to their spawning grounds. Events such as the Adams River salmon run are an amazing spectacle to witness. Large burbot and trout are also found in the lakes.

The interior of B.C. is an area rich in history and beauty. Towns that sprang up during the gold mining days have been refurbished as historical attractions. During the summer, the interior of southwestern British Columbia is a living quilt of orchards providing cherries, peaches, apples, plums, and other fruit. In the winter months, the interior of B.C. offers world class skiing.
