The Cariboo – south, central and north – is all about fishing, hunting, mining and riding horses. The Chilcotin is so wide open I couldn’t believe it, truly the world’s last frontier, few people and wide open spaces. The Coast is a different world, of whales and grizzly bears and salmon. I met with First Nations people, cowboys and fly fishers, gold panners, ranchers and European tourists agog with what they were seeing.
The upcoming Last Frontier website will provide information and photos about where to stay, what to do, places to eat, sights to see, and a reminder to buy gas whenever you see a gas pump because you might not see another one for a while. Details coming soon.
