    Decided to chase waterfalls with my parents at Wells Gray Provincial Park, B.C. The smoke stayed away for the day and we got to see the waterfalls in all their glory.

    My mom has had 2 knee replacements and uses walking sticks so here are the 3 accessible waterfalls we were able to visit (Bonus: they are the 3 main waterfalls!)

    1. Helmcken Falls
    2. Dawson Falls
    3. Spahats Falls

    All the paths are short, wide and pretty flat. Helmcken and Spahats have benches at the viewing platform for those who need to take breaks.
