The next stop on the Circle Farm Tour for my group this week was the Kilby Historic Site in Harrison Mills [Google Map]. Kilby was a bustling whistle stop destination home to thousands at its peak where Mr Acton Kilby ran the general store (1906), post office, hotel, and most elements you’d find in a […]

I have been a guest of the Harrison/Agassiz region for the last 24 hours and although I have numerous entries yet to come about our stops on the Circle Farm Tour, our first destination was Minter Gardens.

The latest in the Day Tripping series takes us south of the border and to no real destination as the journey is the trip. When most folks head across the border from Metro Vancouver they take the I-5 although I highly suggest that next time, if you have some time of your hands, you veer […]

In the first post of the Day Tripping series I talked about the town of Hope being the gateway to holidayland, however it could also be looked at as the gateway to hell. Although heading north on Highway 1 is actually a quite lovely experience the fiery inferno of Hades is simply a reference to […]
