"Oh, did you want to stop?"
"You want to stop again?"
"You just went to the bathroom!"
We love them but, honestly, what are we racing for?
We decided to take the scenic route to the Kootenays, travelling along the Crowsnest Highway. It's curvy but so amazing.... full of history and views that belong on a postcard.
There are over 15 different sites, some that you can see without even getting out of your vehicle. We didn't stop for too many this time but we did make sure to stop for my favourite.... the Drowned Warrior paintings. The four paintings depicted on this cliff wall supposedly tell the story of a young warrior who drowned while canoeing. See....I'm getting goosebumps again.
After an amazing dinner of authentic Ukrainian food and a sleepover in Grand Forks we continued on to Fairmont. We made stops at Christina Lake, Kettle Valley Gorge and of course, the Goat Mountain Soap Company in Yahk.
Fairmont Hotsprings is a wonderful place to have a base camp when you're exploring the Kootenays. Every day one of had our "Princess Day" and got to choose where we would travel to next. From shopping the Bavarian shops in Kimberley to stepping back in time in Fort Steele... every day was a truly unique experience.
