Approximately 10km up the Silver Skagit road from Hope, British Columbia you’ll find the entrance to Silver Lake Provincial Park. The park contains a boat launch and a 25 spot campground, but as I live within an hour away in Langley I have mainly visited here on the way back from the Thompson Okanagan or as a day trip. The photograph above was made on an evening where I was lucky to have a near perfect reflection and some great fall foliage colors. Fall color is somewhat hit and miss in the Fraser Valley, but in 2013 there were some pretty great colors in the foliage of the Vine and Bigleaf Maples. Silver Lake is a great fall destination at all times of the year, but my favourite time here is in the fall. After turning up Silver Skagit road you will see several great views of Silverhope Creek, as well as Eureka Falls just before the turnoff to the park.
