From the journal: “Woke up to sunshine and quite warm weather. Usual routine. Lethbridge and Fort Macleod are over 900m. Great highway. Can see the Rockies from Fort Macleod and they are over 100 kms away. Sky was covered with huge clouds. Huge wind farm in Fort Macleod. Crossed the BC border and kept going till Creston. The scenery is so startlingly beautiful in our province – around every bend, every mountain that we climb, every river we cross. Didn’t realize how much I missed home. Beautiful weather doesn’t hurt either. Walked downtown. They have a fantastic game/toy store. Had to have a Kokanee Beer as they make it here. We sit under the glacier that once was.”
Since 1969 Kokanee beer has been brewed here in Creston, by the Columbia Brewery.
