A day dawdling around the Kootenay Valley. We went to Crystal Beach where an old mining operation was, Pebble Beach hiking trail, the town of Riondel with it’s abandoned Bluebell mine, Garland Bay campground and Tam-O-Shanter Creek for a Fluevog shoe photoshoot.
A Loki Burger at the Crawford Bay Golf Course. There are a lot of Loki references around Kootenay Lake. Loki Mountain for example.
