Scenic and historical Revelstoke

Hi folks! We have arrived in Revelstoke and are here for three nights. We love our accommodations….Kim thinks it’s the perfect tiny house and would like to find a piece of land and build one on it just like it! We agree! It may be smallish, but it has everything we need and then some. We also really like JC the manager, he’s awesome! And there is a dog run area for us. I may have claimed the fire hydrant and toys in there! Here is a link to where we are staying …..we are in the premium one bedroom cabin….But all of the cabins look great!

Our first full day here turned out to be a pretty rainy, so we had a quick drive through Revelstoke National Park before lunchtime and then Kim and John left us behind for our afternoon naps 😀. They went to town to do laundry at Family Laundry, and wandered around downtown while they waited for it to be done. Kim really likes the downtown here…charming old buildings, and a few surprises along the way. Who doesn’t like surprises? Check out this alley art installation, Kim was pretty happy to see this! Brightened up a rainy day!

Lots of restaurants were closed …..maybe time of year, COVID, and staffing shortages? They did find a good one though, called Chubby Funsters. Kim had the Glory bowl and John had the pb&j burger. Kim said they have a great menu with vg, gluten free and vegan options. Fresh and everything made in house. Check out this vegan chocolate blueberry dessert! 🤪😋

In the afternoon, it started to clear up, so we made our way to a couple of trails in the National Park.

First stop….Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail….short and sweet!

A half kilometre boardwalk takes you into the heart of the park’s old-growth forest, among cedar trees that may be more than half a millennium old. Signs along the way relate the importance of functioning ecosystems. Benches are provided so you can relax and breathe in the serene forest atmosphere.

Next stop…..this is pretty cool….Nels Nelson Trail…did you know that world records for ski jumping took place here? We didn’t!

A hike along this trail will lead you to the Nels Nelsen Ski Jump in Mount Revelstoke National Park. Be sure to check out the Nels’ Knickers sculpture created by Revelstoke artist Rob Buchanan in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary. Check out John on the sculpture!

Well folks, we topped the evening off by playtime in the dog run and watching movies. Paws crossed that we have good weather today!

Have an amazing day! Freddy, Levi, and Molly ❤️❤️❤️🐶🐶🐶❤️❤️❤️
