YF's Trip to Harrison Hot Springs 2015

All the photos were taken with my cell because I spent most of the time on bike and there was no way I'd use my big and heavy camera while ride and shoot. Unfortunately, I accidentally turned off the HD option and therefore all the photos during this trip are not on high definition, sorry!



Here is some introductions of this beautiful village...

Harrison Hot Springs (pop. 1,573) might appear to be a small community, but with its first class amenities and natural attributes, Harrison belies its size.

Coupled with its proximity to Vancouver, only 120km/75mi east, and Seattle just three hours south, Harrison is a perfect year-round getaway, offering myriad activities from boating and fishing to hiking, skiing and exploring the rural countryside. Besides, few such places can boast four golf courses within a 15-minute drive. And few places are just as well geared to family fun.

Harrison Lake

The Village of Harrison Hot Springs edges Harrison Lake that extends 77km/48mi north towards a backdrop of snow-capped coastal mountains. Other than the natural hot springs that are the community's namesake, the lake has no industry.

As a result, the sandy shores, picturesque waterfront promenade and Spirit Square Plaza exude a holiday-air throughout the different seasons, and is why the people themselves, who come from surprisingly diverse backgrounds, tend to be equally low key, relaxed and friendly.

Things to Do in Harrison

Its natural setting means that outdoor activities abound. The sheltered waters invite canoeing, sailing, and motorized craft as well as fishing and eco-excursions on the lake, on Harrison River and in Sasquatch Provincial Park. Visit farms, local artisans and heritage sites such as Kilby Historic Site; or make Harrison home-base from which to explore the Fraser Canyon, Hope and Hemlock Valley.

I'm making two threads with identical title but with different sets of photos, so they are not exactly the same thread. The first thread is right here in the BC forum and the other one will be in my Urban Tourist section.

Later I will open another two threads of my trip to the famous Whistler Resort in the same two forums and the photos are all in HD from my cell.



Stay tuned!

Instead of using the heavy traffic Highway 1, we used the more scenic Highway 7 which is north of the Fraser River and running through some small towns and farmlands.


This is Mission which is almost halfway between Surry and Harrison Hot Springs.

Nice little town!! I don't think I've ever heard of it before. You should get a personalized licence plate:

You mean the Harrison Hot Springs or Mission?

Should I use the YF for my personalized licence plate?
