Fernie, Historic & Heritage Sites
I just received the winter issue of British Columbia Magazine
and the front cover is spectacular – a fabulous shot of downtown Fernie all decked out in sparkles and wrapped in a perfect winter wonderland! The snow-sprinkled mountains in the background seem as though you can walk from Main Street to mountain top in less than five minutes. No wonder Fernie
is getting praises from the likes of Rolling Stone
, Conde Nast Traveler
, and National Geographic Adventure
. Read a portion of the British Columbia Magazine article on Fernie
Also in the winter issue: a photo essay on jellyfish
; a feature on Rossland
(another B.C. winter resort town); Vernon's Hot Air Balloon
festival; and a kayaking journey in Haida Gwaii
, where decaying Haida carvings compelled two famous artists, Emily Carr and later Bill Reid, to preserve the past for future generations.
Perfect reading for a day like today; the snow has been coming down since last night and I am sitting in front of my fireplace after shoveling the neighbour’s sidewalk, hot chocolate and magazine in hand.
