The Flin Flon Adventures: Day 15-20 NewDenver/Nelson
Jam Session with Jeremy and some musician friends to figure out if video can lead audio and how both can feed of each other. While it wasnīt perfect for the whole jam there were parts that were extremely tight and working beautifully - very nice.
Now some uncommented impressions from the valley, lake and drive to Nelson BC. The valley is btw the biggest source for a certain forbidden green crop. It makes the area very rich. Most people have this "second income". Some of the houses are just totally stunning.
Nelson BC - a very nice town again with a very very hippy vibe to it. I donīt know why I took so little pictures there - sometimes you just donīt feel it I guess. Here is a side alleyway.
The best (vegetarian organic) burrito ever. You put it together yourself. Choice of 6 organic selfmade sauces - that was ridiculously yummy.
Brian on Nelson Mainstreet.
Nelson Mainstreet - the photo doesnīt do the town justice - just for documentary purposes here.
On the way back in the middle of nowhere on a fallen down barn building on the side of the road this pretty stunning streetart - certain forbidden plants is all I am saying.
To call New Denver a town would be an insult to other towns - but they had great aspirations in former times, just silver price falling of a cliff some 80 years ago didnīt help the expansion much.
A(nother) walk along the lake shore third try to find some old mines (I like holes in the ground). Still totally stunning this lake. Mesmerizing. If you ever need a place to find total inner peace this is the most likely one.
Spring coming - things come alive. How they will survive there between the rocks is another matter I guess.
I did mention that the water is as clear as it can get - for a lake this size unbelievable clear.
Ah there it is - a mine. We found many. and they are just that - holes in the ground. I would have loved to climb in but we didnīt have any rope or light with us - damn. One of the mines went in extremely deep. They are just left there open with a very old very rusty fence on top to stop people from intruding.
On the walk back we came by an electrical switching station. This is the warning sign :)
Still have no idea what a Block Parents Community is, but the design could be from east germany.
New Denver has a bicycle hospital with emergency vehicle and all - just in case your bike ever gets sick.
uhm somebody forgot his toy - then went on to take the bigger toy apart.
Oh I would have so liked to ride with the cool bus - who wouldnīt.
Just a nice garden in New Denver. All gardens where nice in New Denver - people have a lot of time around these parts to tend their gardens.
just because its a nice framing.
I have a bathtub for growing in the garden as well - it makes a really good flower/vegi pot. I am missing out on the hanging bear :)
Thats right this way pointer was there at our final destination the top one says "Berlin 10280 km" yes thats how far I was a away from home.
New Denver Mainstreet - movie set.
Back at the house the forest just beaming with light -pretty pretty.
