In the Caribou Mountains of east central British Columbia is a stunning wilderness provincial park: Wells Gray.
This is a place of plunging waterfalls, racing rivers, wild mountains, interesting rock formations, extinct volcanoes and wildlife.
Some of the wildest parts of Wells Gray are accesible only to the very hardy and adventurous.
Other visitors will still be swept away with the beauty of the this very special, almost secret, part of the province.
The park was named after a man of vision, British Columbia's Minister of Lands, Arthur Wellesley Gray, who pressed the government to preserve and establish the area as a park. It was proclaimed in November 1929 and Gray,
whose nickname was Wells, named it after himself.
