This is something unexpected, an historical site at a rest stop. Since we need a break to stretch our legs we pull in to take a look. It is where the final spike was driven in by Sir Donald Smith on the Canadian Pacific Railroad...More

Free to walk around. Rv parking on site, washrooms, gift shop and wifi. Again I learned so much about the Chinese involvement in the railroad that I wasn’t aware of previous. Definite highlight: was the actual train going through and honking its horn. Set beside...More
