Holy smokes. We got off the ferry at Balfour close to 9pm. After getting into Nelson, it was closer to 9:30pm. We drove around the city to see if there were any vacancies at motels within our usual price range. After hearing, "Sorry, we're full" four times, we were starting to consider the potential reality of car camping. We didn't realize that we were arriving in Nelson the night that the Shambhala Music Festival in Salmo (30 min away) ended. Festival goers had snagged most of the spots in many of the nearby motels and inns. It was getting late. But thankfully, above the price range of most backpackers, we finally found a comfy bed at the Prestige Lakeside Resort.
It was absolute luxury.
Quite a treat and a beautiful space; a king-sized bed with comfy fluffy pillows and a plush duvet, a bathroom almost the width of my living room, the hair dryer in its own dust cover.

What a hot and sunny day! Best way to cool off? Why, in a hot spring, duh!!
It seemed like a very relaxing idea to hang out here and that was the first thing we decided to do today. We didn't take pictures while at the Springs, but I bought a postcard to show what it looked like on the inside. After our visit, we toured a bit through town …
... and nuts to see how my body would react. It's very hard to do; we eat so many grains in our diet that it's hard to avoid and takes a real conscious effort to go without. I did get some positive results though and it's great fun experimenting like that.
Over the past couple of days I've been working with Alex splitting wood and chatting about ethics. I'm also reading a book in which several philosophers are interviewed about their views ...
... the Nelson community where you can buy anything from herbal tea to a soul cleansing massage. A great place to listen to some folk music, drink some home made ginger beer and eat a vegetarian samosa.....so we did. Suitably cleansed we decided to finish the day at the local "beach". Which is actually on the banks of the Kootenay River near BOB, or the Big Orange Bridge which links North Nelson with Nelson. Anyway it's a nice place where the local students gather for beach volleyball ...
... we stopped at the bottle-o for booze. From then on, it became a party bus and everyone was up singing, dancing and having a good time. I kept quiet until we made it home at 9.00pm. Although crook, a great trip and nice to get off the mountain for a couple days. We were welcomed home by Amelia who had arrived from Vancouver early that day!! I had organised a lift from Kelowna for her, so I was very glad she had made it!! She will spend the next 5 days with ...
Today could be renamed "Kootenay day". Upon leaving the Banff area, I immediately crossed into BC again and entered Kootenay National Park. The weather was clear at this point and it was a pleasant drive through hills and then mountainous terrain.
Approaching the interestingly-named town of Radium Hot Springs, the road took a major altitude drop for several miles of 6-8% grades, and then upon reaching the bottom ...
