The Chilliwack river valley is a popular place for camping, fishing, ATV's and hiking in summer.
Winter comes to the Chilliwack valley sooner than other parts of the Fraser Valley, the valley is surrounded by mountains and once December arrives is in the shadow of the mountains. We took the 40 km drive on the paved road to see what the valley looked like on a -4 degree C December day.  

You will see some amazing views of the peaks and forest along the road, and even when the Chilliwack Lake campground is closed, you can walk the short trail to the lake if the snow is not too deep.

We will add some more photos to the post after our next trip.

Below is the google map for the area.
