Wauw… what a weekend. There are not enough words in the world to describe this weekend, it was mind blowing. Over the next day we will review the Rockies Weekend trip. Let’s start with the first day on Friday at 8:00am.
We met at Watefront station on Friday at 8:00am and left Vancouver around 8:30am. Before we stopped in Hope for our first stop, we drove by a little town called Abbotsford, also known as the Canadian Capital of Raspberries. The town as one of the highest percentages of Christians in BC. As Lee told us this would make a great city to life in if it would not have the highest shoot-by crime rate and a high teen-mom rate.
Our first stop was in Hope, a small town in BC that is famous for their main street, where First Blood was produced and famous for their annually chainsaw wood carving fest. All the wooden carvings in Hope are made by only using chainsaw. We grabbed a coffee at the local coffee shop to wake us op and made our way into the Rockies.
We stopped at a big mall for some food and to have a quick walk around the fair before we headed towards the Spatahs Falls.
Before we could see the Spatahs Falls, we had to make our way through some rough snow and of course we all were prepared very well with our sneakers on.
The Spatahs Falls are a waterfall that in the summer gets really massive, but when we visited it was still quit, because there was not enough melted snow water yet. However this waterfall is a great place to make some funny pictures, like the waterfall comes out of your mouth or nose. After making our way back to the bus it was time to relax a bit before we arrived in the hotel in Valemount.
Once arrived in Valemount we checked-in to our rooms and went down to the Lobby for a nice Pasta Dinner before heading next door for our night out. And of course to practice the Backstreet Boys dance that Lee showed us in the Bus.
The first day was a big success and we saw so much of beautiful Canada. Stay tuned for the next Rockies review and do not forget to join the After-Rockies-Party by clicking here.
