Historic sites and natural beauty
Christina Lake, Grand Forks, Greenwood, Midway, Rock Creek
Boundary Country is a mineral-rich swath of land in the Thompson Okanagan Region that begins where the 49th parallel marks the boundary between Canada and the United States. Highway #3 intersects the region from Osoyoos to Grand Forks and travels through landscapes of cedar, spruce, and pine forested mountains, sweeping into ranch lands. Lush, fertile valleys, are bound together by the Kettle River. It flows 282 km from its source in the Monashee Mountains, all the way to the community of Christina Lake.
The Trans Canada Trail, the Kettle Valley Railway, and sections of the historic Dewdney Trail are yours to explore. These vistas inspired the art you’ll see hanging at Grand Forks’ Gallery 2, and at the Christina Lake Living Arts Centre. Connect to Greenwood’s boom then bust and rebirth on a self-guided heritage stroll. Pop down to Rock Creek during the Ponderosa Festival discover emerging and established artists rocking it down by the Kettle River. You can also simply retreat to the shores of the Kettle and Granby Rivers. Drop in a line, connect to the land and water, and fish for Rainbow trout.
