21 Times B.C. Burst With 'True North Strong And Free'

B.C., you babe.

On July 1, we Canadians find ourselves especially proud to live where we do. In B.C., we're feeling extra appreciative of our province and its untamed mountain ranges, sapphire-blue lakes, and roaring coastline.

We've rounded up some of your photos shared with us on Instagram (hash-tagged #huffpostbc) that really capture the gorgeous wilderness of the West Coast.

Without further ado, here are 21 photos that prove B.C. embodies true north strong and free.
