Nairn Falls, located on the Duffey Lake Road (Hwy 99), BC, has an easy trail to its turbulent glacial waters along with a Provincial Park Campground.
Giant Banana Slug on the trail. The turbulent river leading to Nairn Falls. Mossy slope near the falls. The water was really churned up and pale milky green in July 2019. An old photo from 30 years ago taken from almost the same spot. This shows the gorgeous aquamarine colour that I normally associate with these glacial till waters.An informational sign of this same scenic point, showing the potholes, a bridge and the water welling up from an subterranean passage. Mist rising from a hidden fall.An overflow of water spilling off the dark rocks.A panorama shot of one section of the falls.Falls from the second viewing area.Pools on the far side of the falls.Annotated Google map of Hwy 99 from Whistler to Lillooet, BC.There is a Provincial Park Campsite with 94 camping spots at Nairn Falls. When we checked the reservation site on the day before we were going (July 18th) the site informed us that booking had to be done at least two days ahead, and that everything was already booked and unavailable.

However, when we got there about two in the afternoon, some of those bookings had been cancelled, and there were last-minute spots available which we immediately scooped up for my cousin.

Wonderful photos for this week. I’d like to visit there. 😀
It’s fairly close to you – we go down to Oregon all the time…
Oh that beautiful slug!!!
Yes, he’s gorgeous – the post was supposed to be about water but I couldn’t resist putting in a shot of him!
Its all in the eye of the beholder, as they say.
I have never seen a banana slug before! Great captures 😉
They’re huge; if there’s one on the path you can’t miss it!
