Venture further afield to the Marble Mountain Range Provincial Park. Established in 1995, the Park was named for its limestone topography so unusual in British Columbia. The resulting soils are very high in calcium, providing a home for a number of rare plant species. The Park is also home to a herd of California bighorn sheep.
Nearby Chasm Provincial Park was created in 1975 and provides protection for one of the northernmost stands of Ponderosa Pine trees. The geology of the valley with its shades of reds, browns, yellows and purples, resulting from the exposure over millions of years by erosion of the underlyimg successive lava flows is dramatically beautiful.
