This site provides Wells Gray route information and is defined by the type of activity. Kayaking, Hiking, Camping etc.

This site is built by one of the park rangers and gives information about what you can enjoy on the way to Clearwater Lake.  It is called The Corridor Part 1 and the Corridor Part 2

Here is the Wells Gray Provincial Park website.

    Also, there is a wicked book out there and usually pretty easy to find in a bookstore in the Okanagan: Exploring Wells Gray by Roland Neave.

How To Light A Fire Without Matches

Step 1.

Fluff the fatwood by scraping the stick with the edge of your striker. If a hunting knife is available, use the BACK of the blade to fluff.

Step 2.

Practice getting a spark to land on the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your ferro rod and the edge of your striker.

Step 3.

Direct the sparks to the top of the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your QUICK-FIRE and the edge of the Striker. (Or use the back of a blade)
