My Grand Canadian Adventure // Three Valley Gap Ghost Town

Howdy gang, I'm here today to share a few more travel shots with you of my most awesome trip to Canada, earlier this year. There really were so many perfect moments to capture on film (and also a fair few that were too unmissable to bother reaching for my camera), but today I will be delighting you with the truly spectacular Three Valley Gap ghost town


This little gem was a recommendation we picked up along our travels and dang what a perfect tip it was. Hidden amongst the beautiful valleys of the Rocky Mountains British Columbia, this hotel/ private museum allows you to relive the gold fever pioneer days of late 1800s Canada, jam packed with authentic historical items, some of which restored others simply curated in a replica town of an era gone by.


There were over 25 historic buildings including a saloon, a blacksmiths, a watchmakers and a chapel, an antique auto museum, Monashee Mining Co and a railroad roundhouse (home to a beautiful train carriage once belonging to circus royalty PT Barnum!) This was such an experience and a really fun afternoon imagining myself dodgin bullets a la Westworld (what a show btw!) and I would highly recommend adding this little beauty onto your list of 'must see' whilst visiting the area!
