[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We travelled to Harrison Hot Springs on the weekend...beautiful peaceful place now that Autumn has hit....

Settlers are said to have 'discovered' the hot springs in 1858 while enroute to the gold fields. Their boat capsized, and expecting to meet their doom in the frigid waters, they instead discovered that the lake at that spot was not freezing but rather warm. Local Indians called the Hot Springs Kwals, meaning boiling water. The hot springs were revered as a "healing place" by natives of the Coast Salish people, who travelled by canoe to benefit from their waters
