The Flin Flon Adventures: Day 9-10 Revelstoke
Revelstoke by far the nicest of the skitowns we have visited and the ski resort just plainly rocks - while still pretty young there is so much backcountry to ski down ones you are up with the lift its crazy. Next time a bit more fresh powder and its heaven on snowboard earth. Anyway let me take you on a early evening stroll through the town.
Lovely houses again. The photos don´t do them full justice but you get the idea.
And powerlines :)
The highschool building - straight out of a western movie. Massive entrance.
A lot of attention to detail everywhere - the beautiful streetsigns.
Masterfull signage everywhere.
that chinese restaurant and its signage had some intense magic to it.
Mainstreet (not very long). Lots of organic bakeries and foodplaces - all in very lovely western styles - again movie set like but totally real.
The presentation center - former bankbuilding? Greek Columns FTW! ;)
A driving tired brian that was worn out on the mountain in Golden earlier in the day.
uhm. Pinging home.
For my home possy a little inside joke.
An epic long train came along these lamps made beautiful sounds and we have this video of this girl on a really cool bicycle waiting to pass.
This was back at the Motel - I was told that these are very famous chairs that where every Motel back in the 70s - stylish.
Next morning sunrise. We are leaving to our final destination.
The trashcans all had funny shapes across the nation so I finally asked Brian if there is anything behind it - short answer: "Its against bears" - so they don´t like the shape? Anyway bears are a real problem in communities as they dig through trash destroy the trashcans in the process - yes there are lots of bears around - no sadly I have not seen one - they are coming out more in autumn.
Before reaching our destination one more obstacle to pass. A ferry would get us onto a peninsula behind one of the deepest lake in northern america. The lake was chrystal clear and it never freezes - the ferry is part of the road system and massive and free of charge. So we off into just after sunset - dreamlike landscape and just a hint of how nice it would become.
Off into the darkness for another 45 minutes and we will have reached Silverton, BC where the house we would stay is - the middle of a very dense very dark forest. up a very icy road behind a couple of bends - but thats for another entry :)
