Shelly RaeVery confusing feeling day for sure: woke up to the smell of smoke & the terrible fire updates, pouring rain outside and snow on the mountains. Sure hope some of the cooler temperatures & moisture can head to where it needs to be... 😢

Enjoy market season in the Valley!
Enjoy browsing, visiting, and the chance to buy fresh produce and more at outdoor markets in the valley. In downtown McBride, the community market runs on Fridays 11 am to 2 pm in Kolida Park, by the playground and railway station. In Dunster, the farmers’ market runs Saturdays 11 am to 1 pm at the Dunster Community Hall beside Highway 16. While in the valley, or if you are here on other days, visit the indoor markets and shops in McBride and Dunster for art, crafts, produce, baking and much more, including any supplies you might need for travelling or camping. Drop by the Visitor Centre in the railway station at First and Main, McBride any day 9 am to 5 pm for directions, or call 1-866-569-3366.

If you're heading to Prince George you should check out the Ancient Cedar Forest. It is located 94 km west of McBride just after the slim creek rest stop. The site offers lots of space to park and a few outhouses.
The forest is a rare inland temperate rainforest with 20 hectares of old growth trees and plant communities that have been undisturbed for thousands of years. Some of the trees are 2.5-3 meters (8-10 feet) in diameter. This new provincial park is a popular destination for hiking in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter.
There are multiple trails that lead you through the area. You can spend 20 minutes on the main boardwalk, which is wheelchair accessible. There are also trails that take a few hours. All of these photos were taken from the main boardwalk. Imagine what you could see if you take the long route! Stop in and check it out!

The celebrations in the park went well! Our information counselors and the library were working hard with the kids and the food by the museum was great. Continue your Canada 150 celebrations at the Dunster Ice Cream Social at 7pm where you can dance your heart away and eat all the dessert you desire! There will be live music by Roadside Splinter at 9pm. Then you can finish your night off with fireworks at 10:30pm. Stop in at the visitor centre anytime today until 7pm for som information and some Canada Day gifts.
Happy Canada Day!
