Radium BC weekend 


Last weekend Dave, Mick and I went to Radium BC for the weekend. It was a nice little getaway where we got to experience the hotsprings. 

I had never been to a hotspring before, so this was a nice first experience. The hotspring is located in Kootenay National Park, and has been made into a giant swimming pool like tub. It’s cool because on one side is the indoor facility (which is a great modern building built in the early 1950s) and on the other is the mountain face. 

It wasn’t as hot as I thought it would be, it was very pleasant. I could definitely stay it it longer than a jacuzzi or hot tub. It felt so nice to be submerged in the warm water. My joints loved it like a big warm hug. 

While we were there, it was raining the entire time, but that didn’t stop us from going in, and it didn’t stop other people. I was quite surprised at how busy it was, even at 9pm, it was still quite busy. 

Radium is also home to a big herd of Mountain Sheep. Seeing them was a first for me as well. Micky could not contain himself around them. What would you do with a sheep, Micky? 

On Saturday night, we saw about 30 of them run full speed down the road/highway. It was a sight to see! They were heading on down the highway like they were late to a meeting. 


The sky cleared right for us to leave. I managed to take this picture just before we departed. Such a beautiful place. 

I hope we can get back to Radium or another hotspring location this winter. It was such a lovely break, and was quite affordable for a weekend away.
