hope

hope, b.c.
the main drag – wallace street looking east.

49°23′09″N 121°26′31″W

the poor man’s whistler

almost banff without the crowds

the junction or beginning of: highway 1 (the fraser canyon and the rest of canada), highway 3 to the crowsnest pass and alberta, 5 the yellowhead and jasper. hope is also the end (or beginning of highway 7  from the coast).

surrounded by mountains and forest, embraced by the mighty fraser and the coquihalla rivers it is about as spectacular as it gets.

around 7 thousand souls

great fishing 5 minutes away, hiking – out the back door or further and skiing – in manning park 1 hour or less or hemlock valley about an hour and a half.

far enough away from vancouver but close enough if you have to go (180 km)

next door to farmers and good food (chilliwack 50 km) and (agassiz 35 km)
