We drove back into the blessed mountains today. The Rockies are gorgeous around Crow Nest Pass and Fernie. We have made a note to stop and stay at Crow's Nest Pass next time we come through as it is in a beautiful mountain setting. We stopped in Sparwood and walked around the town. We found one gigantic mining truck. In Fernie we're parked at a Prov. Camp site. It only has toilets - no showers. Also water taps that we can't attach hoses to to fill up the trailers. The setting in Fernie is a beautiful mountain setting. It has lovely old brick buildings in the historical part of town. There are so many lodges and condos going up for the skiers in the winter. Right now the mountain is being used for mountain biking -there are at least 33 trails for bikes and many for hikers as well.
