Where are we?

(see map at the bottom, please)

We are in South-Central British Columbia, in the Cariboo (Chilcotin-Coast) region, about one kilometer off Highway 97, the road "between Cache Creek and the Yukon and Alaska", about 15 kilometers (9 miles) north of the little town of 100 Mile House, 80 kilometers south of the city of Williams Lake, 500 road kilometers, an easy day trip -via Whistler or Hope- from Vancouver, about 3 hours from Barkerville. The next stops of some guests of ours often are Jasper or Banff/Lake Louise in the great National Parks in the Rocky Mountains.

By the way, we are neither "a ranch" nor "on a ranch". Our little village used to be part of the historic 108 Mile Ranch - and kept the nostalgic name.
