Following my enjoyable dips in the hot springs, I needed a new destination for exploration. Lucky for me I ran into some friendly photographers in Radium(Fawzi and Lindsey) who suggested I keep heading south to the historic town of Fort Steele. The drive to Fort Steele took just over an hour and was very scenic.
Once I arrived, I was amazed at how it felt like I was stepping back in time. Walking through the whitewashed wooden gates, I found myself surrounded by buildings and costumed folks that echoed an important part of BC history. I found my bearings and headed over to the photography studio to get suited up. Now that I looked the part, I was treated to a brief history lesson by two long time residents, Mrs. Kershaw and “Nugget” Norm. Following an awesome day at the historic town, I headed to the Bull River Guest Ranch for a little rest and relaxation. The accommodations were exceptional, rustic log cabins with beautiful field stone fireplaces and big cozy beds. The next morning I met up with Greg and Gina who took me on a fantastic trail ride, beautiful views and great company.
