Waterfalls of British Columbia
A Guide to BC's 100 Best FallsBook - 2009
More than any other geographic feature, waterfalls have the power to delight and inspire. Mile for mile, British Columbia boasts perhaps the richest array of waterfalls in the world, with many parks created around awe-inspiring spectacles of falling water. This is the first and only guidebook to focus on BC's spectacular waterfalls. It includes Kinuseo Falls, one of Canada's premier waterfalls, and renowned Helmcken, Hunlen, Takakkaw and Della falls as well as ninety-six lesser-known but equally magical locations of cascading splendour, with up-to-date maps and detailed trail descriptions for each destination. Organised by region, each entry has a description of height, geology and geomorphology as well as an explanation of how the falls were discovered and named. Greenfield's expertise in geology, silviculture, ornithology and a love for British Columbia's beautiful backcountry provides fascinating highlights to each site, including which wild flowers, trees and birds to watch for on the trail. Filled with colour photos, useful information, interesting anecdotes and history, this guide will not just get readers there, but will help interpret and enhance their experience. This unique guide is suitable for day-trippers and dedicated backcountry enthusiasts alike.
