Bucket List Trip 2019 - Canada - Three Valley Lake Chateau and Three Valley Gap Ghost Town

Added: Tuesday, August 13th 2019 at 12:54am by Maria

Continuing our coach trip from Canmore to Kamloops on the shores of Three Valley lake is this beautiful chateau.

And this Ghost Town.

The Three Valley Gap Ghost Town is situated 12 miles (19 kilometers) to the west of Revelstoke on the Trans Canada Highway.

Three Valley Gap Ghost Town is a recreated heritage town including a saloon, jail, old school house and general store.

The Saloon

and of course that perfect place to find your souvenirs while enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee and a snack.

there's other hotels and motels nearby...

The road to Kamloops on the Trans Canada Highway is definitely a lovely scenic drive with lots of interesting spots to stop and explore.

Next stop Craigellachie...

Love, absolutely love the building with the red roof.

it's not cheap, I just checked the rates....lol.

I wouldn't have thought it was...but I still like looking..lol

Doesn't look like a cheep place, but boy it that pink roof look really look lovely.

it is not a cheap place for a holiday Sandra but it was lovely to stop for a visit...{#basic-laugh.gif}

very beautiful by the lake...glad they preserved it all...was it warm there...[thanks..interesting!]

not warm, quite chilly when the sun wasnt shining.

Beautiful pictures Maria, the lake is so pretty. Enjoyed seeing the ghost town. The chateau sure was different looking. Bro. Doc

I really enjoyed this leg of my journey to Kamloops, saw some very pretty and amazing places...

Lots of beautiful places. But you still need to see Oregon Maria. Bro. Doc

I'll get there one day Bro Doc. I promised Marty so I have to keep my promise....{#basic-laugh.gif}

That should be your next trip. Bro. Doc

My next big trip is the Trans Siberian rail journey across Russia. Maybe after that....{#basic-laugh.gif}

I am not sure I would want to do that one. Russia has problems. I hear from some people, they say you might not be able to take pictures or use a cell phone. I don't know if that is true. But I don't think I would go there. Bro. Doc

It's been in my bucket list for a long time and I've seen documentaries about it, also I've done a fair bit of research on tour companies that offer different packages and they look breath-taking. You get to see so many beautiful cities across Russia and you get to learn the culture and meet a lot of people. I dont think Russia has any more problems that the US or Canada or Australia for that matter.  Political problems dont normally affect ordinary every day communities one will encounter on such a tour.  I guess it's a matter of personal choice Bro Doc.  But I've always had an adventurous spirit and Russia looks absolutely beautiful. {#basic-laugh.gif}

Just that now, there is lots of unrest in Russia, and I don't think I would go. But that is up too you. Bro. Doc

The "unrest" is centered mainly in Moscow but the rest of the country is reasonably peaceful.  There are some very beautiful places the Trans Siberian Railway goes through that I would love to see.  To be perfectly honest with you Bro Doc. the gun violence in the US would worry me a heck of a lot more than the unrest in Moscow.  The majority of cities and towns and villages outside of Moscow are peaceful and beautiful with people going about their business without any dramas.  It is not that way in many places around the US where people are walking around with guns, police are racial profiling blacks, there is a lot of hooliganism going on with youths on drugs, people are hating on each other because of what they see their leaders doing.  I keep up with news and current affairs all over the world and I have to tell you, Russia at the moment is a heck of a lot more peaceful than the US.  Sorry but that is just my opinion and not meant to disrespect the US, I am just calling it as I see it.

But, in Russia, you could be in jail for anything. I think the last place to be in a country that has so much control over people. But that is me. Bro. Doc

Dont worry Bro Doc. I've been in an Indonesian jail in a tiny town in the middle of the jungle in Borneo (Kalimantan) so I have learned lessons in how to stay out of them...lol.  I will post travel blogs of the trip so you will see just how beautiful the country is...{#basic-laugh.gif}

I just don't personally think it is wise to go there. Just my opinion. Bro. Doc

I appreciate your opinion Bro Doc. I promise I will be careful..{#basic-smile.gif}

Ok. Bro. Doc

Never been to Canada but I luv it just the same. Weird, huh?

not really, it is a very beautiful country so what's not to love!!...

very cool. The ghost town looks neat to visit. 

it's great to see how people lived a century ago!!

Yes it sure is. Sometimes I look at times in the past how people lived & i'm glad O' I'm so happy I'm living today not back in their time.
