    I’m not a wine drinker but my friends love the tasting. The lady hosting was friendly and knowledgeable. Great cookbooks and other wine related goods. The views are spectacular. Love the idea of maybe having a restaurant built on the roof. Views would be breathtaking and people would visit from around the world when we return to normal.

    Beautiful Lake nestled in the mountain. Well worth the drive whether you are coming from Pemberton or Lilooet. Great place to snap a few photos.

    We made a road trip from Whistler to get to lillooet. The road is spectacular and the suspension bridge area is worth seing.

    As we were on a quick stop over for a bite to eat we did not spend too long in here.
    The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and the exhibits were olde worlde as you would expect. This is not a massive exhibit so you could easily look round in 30 mins.

    Outside there was a nice totem pole, good photo opportunity and some massive chunks of Jade. Nice.
    There are some public restrooms just across the grass very nearby.

    SCM Provincial Park is a beautiful backcountry destination with fairly easy access, well built trails and tons to see. In our three night stay starting from Jewel Bridge we were able to see a very small portion of the park. In total we saw a total of 20 people so it's not that busy and there was quite a bit of wild life. We saw moose, deer and a bear. Wild flowers are beautiful as are the lakes and mountain views. We will definitely return for a longer trip. I would recommend staying at least 5-7 nights.

    The Memorial is relatively new as it was officially opened in May 2018.
    With the involvement of Canada in World War II, Japanese Canadians were moved to various internment camps in the interior of British Columbia.

    As far as memorials go, this is a very simple memorial that honours all the Japanese Canadians that were removed from their homes on the Pacific Coast and moved to four internment camps in the area - East Lillooet, Bridge River, Minto, and McGillivray Falls.

    There is some background information and the history of the internment camps on the signage.

    I would rate the actual physical site as “okay” - a simple landscaped clearing. However, in terms of historical significance, a very important memorial for the Japanese Canadians and also a reminder of Canada’s past dark history.

    I would rate the attraction as “good” - 3.75 out of 5 rating.

    Notes &Tips:
    • The Memorial is fairly easy to find. Take Duffy Lake Road and once over the Bridge of the 23 Camels, drive about a minute and you will see the Fort Berens Estate Winery on your left and the “T” intersection in front of you. Make a right turn at Highway 12, drive less than a minute and the Memorial will be on your right.
    • Unsupervised site and there is admission fee
    • Small parking lot
    • Check the National Association of Japanese Canadians website for additional information
    • Prior to visiting this memorial, we visited Miyazaki House in Lillooet. Dr Miyazaki served the Village of Lillooet and the surrounding area for many years and was a very important person in Lillooet’s history. After our visit to the Miyazaki heritage house, we went for lunch at May Wong Chinese restaurant also in Lillooet. See my reviews for both sites.

    Every part of our visit to Cliff and Gorge winery was so special - Eckhard's company, the delicious wines, the majestic scenery, the walking trail, the serenity and the one lane gravel road part of the way. Each year we check out at least 8 wineries in BC and Cliff and Gorge is definitely now one of our most memorable experiences.

    OMG This thing is so cute. We spotted it on our way out of town.

    I love this town it has some real working but old cowboy western style buildings. Without all the modern trappings of life now, you could have been transported back in time.

    The shuttle was sitting slightly down the rails from the station.
    Its another world.

    We took the full tour. Starting at the fishing site. There were so many fish that at the time we got to the river most fishermen had finished there quota and were no longer there. It was good to see that they are not putting on a show and that these were real people fishing for there living.
    The stories that are guide told us were really moving as she explained the struggle of keeping the traditions while cooping with western influence. She was trying to hide the ״bad” parts but we could understand what she and her people had to go through.
    The archeological site was not very impressive as the restoration was undergoing. I hope they will have the development they wish for so it will be more accessible to everyone and you will need less imagination.
    The food was good apart from the desert which was an experience of its own

    We thank Xwisten for the opportunity to peek into there world

    After staying in Whistler and seeing the posh courses with all their "keep of" and "no access"-signs and fences to keep non golfers of the premises it is really nice to meet the welcoming people (and sheep) at Lillooet Sheep Pasture golf club. This is where farming and golfing meet. In harmony. When we arrived the sheep was off duty as greenkeepers, because of the lambing-season. But normally they are on the course keeping the grass down, helped by a few Llamas. The course was in good condition and it is full of challenges. The april greenfee of 10 dollars for as many holes you like is probably the best value for money you can get anywhere. We have to be honest. We did not come all the way from Norway on holiday just to play this course, but it was a perfect thing to do among other wonderful stops.

    I went with my boyfriend for two days, wasn't sure what to expect as I never tried glamping before.... what a cool experience! The cabins were very well furnished, cozy and clean in an unique location.
    Tim has been very kind and welcoming with us, with his suggestions on where to hike around the ranch as well as the amazing experience trout fishing on the kayak.
    Would definitely go back.

    First a clarification about this "new to TA" attraction, which I nominated. The business operates out of Lillooet, B.C., but the official mailing address is in Alder Flats, Alberta.

    Five of us recently booked a 2 day fishing adventure with River Monsters and we had a blast catching and releasing 19 white sturgeon, the largest freshwater fish in North America. How large? I'm glad you asked. Our largest fish checked in at a shade under 9 feet and 400 lbs. It took me an hour to bring it in, after a thrilling boat chase for almost 2 km down the mighty Fraser. I was exhausted but thrilled to catch my first sturgeon. And get this, that fish fought hard the whole way, including 4 spectacular jumps. When a fish that size comes out of the water there really are no words to describe it.

    River Monsters has first rate equipment and outstanding guides that really know their business. Guide Tyler had us onto fish within 2 minutes of wetting our baits, and from there the action continued more or less non-stop. We didn't get another giant, but there were a dozen fish in the 5.5-7.5 foot range, and fish of that size give anyone a battle to remember. Every member of our party caught the biggest fish of their life. Giants indeed. How's that for a memory?

    When the battle is over each fish is carefully measured and checked for an existing tag indicating it had been caught before. Only 3 of our fish weren't tagged, which speaks to the care taken to maintain this outstanding sustainable fishery.

    Lillooet is a charming town nestled high on the terraces above the Fraser River. If you like history Lillooet is the starting point of the Cariboo Wagon Road which took people on the famous gold rush trail to Barkerville in the 1860s. When we expressed interest Tyler provided gold pans and advice and we managed to find several flecks of gold in the few minutes that weren't occupied in fighting sturgeon.

    The fishing is astounding, the river is awesome, and you will leave with sore bodies and soaring spirits.
