There are a bunch of Kootenay folk around. I wish I was still a Kootenay girl. I grew up in Kaslo.

Hi Fern!

I lived in Kaslo for the first four or so years of my life... I love the town. Enjoy yourself - I'm sure you'll have lots of like-minded friends soon!

I haven't been back since the summer before last, when I took the kids to the beach and the playground and out for ice cream. It really hasn't changed much in 30 years!

I really love the drive from Kaslo over the top to New Denver. Fish and Bear Lakes are so beautiful!

I'm a wee tiny bit jealous that you are moving there! Say Hi to it for me...

its a pretty special place. the first day we were there we walked downtown, past the lake to the playground and i almost cried. its just so..perfect!
ill be sure to say hi for you, and you should come visit. we will have a guest room!

im not sure if we drove the same way..we took the sandon road from new denver to kaslo..is that the same way? it was the first time for me, so im not familiar with the names of the lakes, ect.

I'm a West Kootenay girl! I grew up in Salmo, just moved to Burnaby from Nelson a few months ago... Spent a lot of time in Castlegar going to school and was on their swim team for a long, long, long time

It's only about 70 miles as the crow flies north east over the mountains. However you have to go the long way around so it's I think about 3 1/2- 4 hours by car.


Mama Fern have you moved to Kaslo yet? I know another mama Fern there. She's the owner of "Fern's Flowers and Fancies", the florist shop in town. She bought the store from my mom when she retired. Fern and my mom have been friends since I was little. If you ever go in there, tell her Shawna says hello.

No, that's not the same Fern. The Fern I know has lived in Kaslo since the early 70's

I'm going to be in the Kootenays in July. We're going to the Starbelly Jam music festival and we'll be in Nelson for a few days before that. We plan on spending at least one day in Kaslo hanging out at the beach and having lunch at the Treehouse. Maybe I'll see you.
