In Revelstoke there was a summer music festival with free music concerts every evening. We saw a good band from Golden called Will Horse. I bought a T-Shirt in support. One day we drove up Mt
Kaslo is a cute little town just north of Nelson. It has a quirky wild west feel to the main street. We just hung out here for the night. There was a major landslide in Johnson's Landing not far from Kaslo that was dominating people's minds at the time. A number of houses got buried and 3 or 4 people died.
On the Friday 13th we arrived in Nelson. We were very curious about Nelson as this is where our friends Mike & Steph have chosen to settle. We arrived a day earlier than when they would return from a trip. We stayed in City campground 2nights and stayed with Mike and Steph for 2 nights. It was really cool to hang out with them and get to know their daughter Ruby and meet Steph's parents. They gave us the local experience in Nelson. Lovely town and a good size. Some very quickly characters living here. We did some hiking and kayaking on the lake while we were here.
We really enjoyed the Kootenay region heaps!
