Late June through August the awe-insiring Trophy Mountain alpine meadows are adorned with an abundant display of brilliant wildflowers, considered one of Canada's most beautiful pristine meadows.
Early September salmon begin their journey up the Clearwater River. Watch in amazement as they try to jump the seemingly impossible rapids at Bailey's Chute. And marvel at the now brilliant orange colored Kokanne in the shallows of Dutch Lake.
