Many of these photos are made by Dudley Foskett, and include locations such coast and fisheries in northern British Columbia and native villages. The vast majority of mountains in Canada lie in the western provinces of British Columbia and Alberta and the Yukon Territory.

Canada has an extremely large number of lakes. The number of lakes larger than three square kilometers is estimated at close to 31,752 by the Atlas of Canada, with 561 lakes with a surface area larger than 100 km2. Almost 9% of Canada’s total area is covered by freshwater.

Owikeno Lake is a large fjord lake in the Central Coast region of British Columbia, Canada. It connects to the head of Rivers Inlet by the short Wannock River. The lake’s name comes from the indigenous people of the region, the Wuikinuxv, whose settlements and territory lie around the lake. Owikeno Lake is fed by several large rivers, the Tzeo, Inziana, Machmell, Neechantz, Sheemahant and Washwash Rivers.

The Athabasca River originates from the Columbia Glacier of the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. The impressive and scenic Athabasca Falls is located upstream about 30 km from the Jasper townsite. This river was designated a Canadian Heritage River for its importance to the fur trade and the construction of railways and roads opening up the Canadian West, as well as for its natural heritage.

The Cariboo is an intermontane region of British Columbia along a plateau stretching from the Fraser Canyon to the Cariboo Mountains.

The name is a reference to the woodland caribou that were once abundant in the region. The Cariboo was the first region of the Interior north of the lower Fraser and its canyon to be settled by non-indigenous people, and played an important part in the early history of the colony and province.
