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 …
9.30 - I wonder what today will bring? We have no plans other than drive out of Alberta and into BC to Nelson and we will decide along the way what to stop and investigate.
10.30 - Leitch Colleries, Provincial Historical Site. An old mine that closed down in 1915 by the banks.
11am - over the border and back into British Columbia (time changes back an hour)
10.30 - The Biggest Truck in the World (1995), Sparwood. ...
... up views of the incredible mountain sheep. In the evening we relaxed in the hot springs, followed by a long sleep and lazy morning. Again unsure of our exact destination we waited for a ride and along one came! Naresh was headed home to Calgary, and as we saw such beautiful sights of the mountains during the ride we opted for the city either than the tourist town of Banff. Another generous soul, he gave us keys to his place and ...
... a house at the side of the road.
Timing was just right for the ferry which is a drive-on drive-off free trip to Balfour. All of us got on – about 120 vehicles with space for more, but we imagine there are waits in the high season. It was a nice 30 minute sailing with views of the lake and mountains.
We headed first north to Kaslo, a town that we had been told about, as it is meant to be a very pretty little area. On reflection we would have preferred more ...
... little further. Lots of cherry orchards in the area. We had a picnic lunch at a delightful rest area at Kipp creek. Finally, we found a spot with trees, flowers, picnic tables and a creek nearby! From there we took Hwy 3A up the east side of Kootenay Lake. What a beautiful drive and, in our minds, rivals the sea to sky hwy. Yes, we passed by the Glass House, constructed using 500,000 square-shaped embalming fluid bottles and ...
