Crowsnest Pass is Awesome

I love Crowsnest Pass. Besides being the place Ryan proposed, Crowsnest Pass is my own Stars Hollow (Gilmore Girls reference). We packed a lot into one short visit.

Bellevue Mine Tour

My baby brother Ben and I did the Bellevue Mine Tour a couple years ago and I knew the next time my family was in town I wanted to take them.  It’s always nerve-wracking when you talk something up because what if it’s not as great as you remembered? But the Bellevue Mine Tour didn’t disappoint.

My mum loved hearing about the ghost stories of the mine.

Everyone said they really enjoyed the tour. I recommend you go check it out for yourself next time you’re in the area. the tour takes about an hour.

Lunch by the River

After the mine tour, we got A&W and ate it by the Crowsnest River.

Frank Slide

After lunch we stopped at Frank Slide to read the interpretive signage and walk around the rubble. Again, as my mother is obsessed with ghosts she liked to talk about the possibilities of the dead walking among the rubble. Ha ha!

Lundbreck Falls

We ended our adventures with a pit stop/photo op at Lundbreck Falls. I always stop here on my road trips to and from Seattle because it is so gorgeous.

It was an amazing day of outdoor fun with my family. Why can’t every day be like this?
