The Fraser Valley~Bridal Veil Falls

August 21, 2010

You never know what you'll run into on the way to a destination.  We ran into Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park.  It was a very scenic area in the Fraser Valley where visitors can enjoy picnicking, hiking, and viewing the spectacular Bridal Veil Falls, the sixth-highest waterfall in Canada.

Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park is located at the site of the ancient village of Popkum, which has settlement records dating back to the 1700s. Popkum is a First Nations word meaning puff ball, a plant which grows abundantly in the area.  We didn't picnic but we certainly had a spectacular hike and view.

I didn't hike to Bridal Veil Falls; Helen did but I don't have her pictures.  She said it was beautiful.
