First Class Fishing in Fernie’s Famous Elk River

Well that’s a mouthful and a half….wasn’t really sure how to word it but there you have it…..we have a fishing paradise here in Fernie and men, women and children come from all over the world to test our waters. Fish stories are exchanged daily over mugs of steaming lattés and cappuccinos….about the one that […]

I Remember December…..in Fernie BC

Why on earth I am thinking about December is beyond me! I mean really…we still have blue skies, sunshine, trails to explore, golf to play and fish to catch!

Fernie B.C. is Nothing Short of a Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, in a sleepy little coal town nestled in the majestic Rocky Mountains in the East Kootenays, some exciting things happened – the town was abuzz – a ski hill was built and curious adventurers traveled from far and wide to see this wondrous new addition. Soon they wanted to stay for […]

Well Hello Summer! Thanks For Showing Up!

So I think my ranting in yesterday’s post woke Mother Nature up! Today is the first day of summer and the clouds are giving way to some azure blue and the sun is peeping through! Fernie is looking absolutely spectacular….decorated in lush, varying shades of green and dotted with colourful wildflowers poking their way towards […]
