Sunrise over Junker Lake in the West Chilcotin

Exactly this time last year, I stood on the shores of Junker Lake and made this image. It was 5 am when the light began to illuminate Junker Lake, one of the Turner Lakes in South Tweedsmuir Park. Our party of four was the only group of paddlers in the entire park.

The Cariboo Chilcotin offers some of the most spectacular lake canoeing in the world. On the Turner Lakes you paddle right up to the base of the Coast Mountains. It doesn’t get much better than that! Enjoy!
