Lots of outdoor time in Fernie BC

Well, we love Canada.

We spent nearly the entire time in Fernie outdoors…which is what we love!!

Tons of bike rides…they have so many rec trails along the river and around the town.


This is elk River…

We went to a fruit stand… Spent $10 on 2 lbs of local cherries!

We went up to the alpine ski lodge just 5 Min south of town…


I bet it’s gorgeous during winter!!

A couple pics of the RV park….


Here’s the main local park we played at…and later came back for the weekly farmers market…

A real train for the kids to climb on…

Then we took the 20 Min drive north to Sparwood where we visited the world’s largest truck!!

Anikka for contrast…she’s 3 feet tall…






Anikka doing some yoga…

Fernie had an awesome aquatic center…

We swam for a few hours…

It was only $5 per person to swim and anikka was free!

Nice sunny days!!

Back up to the alpine lodge. We thought they had a carnival but no luck…

Still had fun…

Nice views…

Then we went to Island Lake lodge where justin bribery rents out a cottage for a month each year AND Justin Timberlake had his birthday last year!! It’s hidden deep in the woods after a 2 mile drive…



Deep in the woods…

Finally we took turns riding bikes down hill toward town while one of us drove…


Then we found an awesome bridge over the river so we stopped to play for a bit.



This is a local Rec area right in town where people swim and play in The Lakes. The water was very clean and clear.



We got to see a fantastic double rainbow over the RV Resort before we left. What a gift!!


Finally, we went to the farmers market!!

Anikka got a tattoo!!

Temporary of course…

Aaaand back to the park…

Fernie pub and brewery…

We ate anikka macaroni lol she ate the veggies!

I ended up ordering what was called a Caesar. It’s basically a Canadian bloody Mary with some oyster juice mixed in. It was really good!!

My early morning bike ride…

Gorgeous skies

Byeeeee Fernie!!!

Onward to the states! Montana and glacier national park here we come!!

Back to beautiful British Columbia mountains for a week in Fernie!

So the drive from Calgary to Fernie was a bit longer than we had expected. Even using Google Maps to help navigate the trip ended up taking over 4 hours, this was mostly do to a few roadblocks and because we had to drive slow going up and down the hills to get into the mountains again. 

Bye Calgary!

We actually thought we had taken a wrong turn because we ended up taking a small Farm Road that cut across some beautiful fields. Canada has some amazing farmland so here is the gentle progression from Calgary back up into the mountains..

Tons of flowers in bloom!

More flat…

This is the worst traffic we have seen in months LOL!! It was a 10 minute delay…

Finally! A hill!!

Getting more terrain…

Yes!! A river!!! Elk Valley River…

And then…bam!! Fernie.

Fernie RV Resort. Apparently this is the newest RV Resort in British Columbia right now!!

What have we done? Well, we Googled some restaurants and ended up going to a place called with The Loaf. They had an awesome outdoor patio, they were kid friendly, and they had an awesome selection of beer and pizza!

Yum!!!

They also have a gorgeous disc golf course here so we went yesterday to play. We played about 8 holes and then saw a big storm coming (and kid needed a nap!)

Today we woke up to heavy clouds and some drizzle outside. It’s actually really pretty and you cannot see the mountains just the giant trees lining the sky right now. Not sure what we have planned today except a little bit of work but I’m sure will be outdoors doing something fun soon!!
