{ day 3: mt. revelstoke national park }

For day 3 we packed up and were back in the Lincoln MKC for a long day of driving between Kananaskis and Vancouver.

I would have loved to be able to stop several times along the gorgeous Trans-Canada Highway to better enjoy all this area has to offer. However, my husband has a work meeting in Vancouver. To quote the late Jerry Reed, "We've got a long way to go, and a short time to get there!"

The drive through Alberta and British Columbia on Highway 1 is simply spectacular. It seemed like every turn was worthy of "oohs" and "ahhs."

Every rest stop seems to be even more picturesque than the next. {The outhouses at them, not so much.} As I commented on one of my Instagram posts, these are some of the most beautiful places I had ever changed a bum!




I kept saying, "We need to come back some time and explore that area." And, "You could spend a week just enjoying this little town." I hope to have the opportunity to come back through this area with the kids and take our time along this majestic stretch of mountains.

We stopped for a picnic lunch at the "Giant Cedars" turn-off in the Mt. Revelstoke National Park, about 30 kilometres east of Revelstoke, B.C. We had lunch and then stretched our legs on the half-kilometre boardwalk trail that cuts through a rainforest of 500-year-old giant cedars.

It felt as though we were entering an enchanted forest with the sun rays shining through the canopy of ancient branches. The boardwalk had several steps but it felt quite safe and my 2-year-old welcomed the opportunity to go up and down on them.

I am sure that there are so many of these amazing stops along the Trans-Canada Highway, but this is one that I feel should not be missed.
