New short clip from Destination BC featuring Richard Cannings.


Really sums up the natural wonder that is Vaseaux Lake

I have never been to Vaseux Lake, seeing this little video just increased my desire to get there one day, so glad sanctuaries like this exist.

I happen to live close enough to visit often. This may be a great place for bird watching with a scope or good binos, any expectation that you will get great photos will probably not be realized unless you have big glass as they are usually on the other side of the lake and the song birds have lots of cover.

There is a walkway off the parking lot to get to some areas. The trail gets overgrown in the summer and signs for poison ivy along the walkway. +lots of bug spray needed. The blind was being rebuilt last summer, so the western part was not accessible. The blind looked like it was still not completed as of 2 weeks ago as you can see it from McIntyre Road across highway 97; where one can often find a heard of California Bighorn sheep.

Great wildlife area, not so great for unprepared humans (-:
