Great rooms, comfortable beds, clean, great full breakfast included. Only thing possible negative about the room was there was no air conditioning, but we were here the end of June and were using heat, not air conditioning, anyway.

It's not an exciting story but the long and short of it is that Canmore where I was due to head next, is just a smaller, ...
... and interest through the remainder of the afternoon -- waterways, waterfalls, bridges, creeks, etc- too many to remember and mention. Besides, my iPad battery wore down to 10%! However, the Shuswap Lake is worthy specific mention for it's coastline is 630 miles and it is 500 feet deep! By way of comparison, the coastline of Mary's home state of New Hampshire is a mere 12 miles! The Shuswap Lake hosts many houseboats and, also, a floating general store and a ...
