At a very particular time of day, the Canim lake falls, East of 100 Mile House, can produce an amazing show of light and color. When the sun cuts through the swirling mist of the falls at just the right angle, a rainbow appears and dances for anyone lucky enough to be there at the perfect moment.
Rainbows are part of the myths of many cultures around the world but perhaps the most famous piece of mythology surrounding rainbows is the Irish legend of the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. The gold is guarded by a tricky leprechaun, but because no one sees the same rainbow and rainbows don’t “end” (they’re circles) — no one ever finds the gold or the magical creature.
But don’t be discouraged, who knows where these tights might lead you!
