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 …

scratches when strategically employed.
Once again we headed out just before noon. The views along highway 3 are beautiful. We saw less and less snow, denser tree growth, small streams and lakes glistening under the clear blue sky and sunshine today. After an hour of driving we decided to stop in a pullout for lunch. Don managed to miss all the ones with great views ...
... feel huge surges of energy which radiated from my face down through my toes after about 30 minutes or so and a strange sense of both lifting off the ground and sinking into it at the same time. It's strange to think that we can produce such a reaction just from breathing.
Last week we had our Canadian Thanksgiving. There was a bunch of people around and it was a really nice feeling being a part of it all. We ate amazing food, including a ...
... it was time for the next chapter in my journey and I knew it had to be done. After an incredible shower, a huge dinner, laundry, a couple of craft beers and a night on a queen sized bed, I was picked up and taken in to Seattle.
The next couple of days were pretty uneventful; moving from Seattle, into Vancouver (Canada), then out to a town called Nelson.
The bus ride from Vancouver to Nelson took over 12 hours, but it was a beautiful drive. It is so green ...
... by our new friends. Tonight we went to a party out in the country which was a wonderful way to end our whirlwind week in Alberta. Thumbs up for the people of this province, they are what makes it worth visiting! I felt pretty sad after we left BC as we felt so at home, but glad it was followed by such fun times. We are sure we will be back here someday. Now we await our train across the country to Toronto, a 3 day journey. Next chapter ...
