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
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)
