Pushing and pulling in Field, British Columbia…

What started off as a service centre for the railway back in 1883 has now turned into a small bustling hamlet of about two hundred residents with numerous B and B’s lining the streets.   As I walked the hilly streets that encompassed the area, I was found myself counting three trains, two were freight and the last one was the Rocky Mountaineer whisking passengers to their next destination.  The town of Field is nestled in a valley just west of Lake Louise along the Trans Canada, for many it’s a quick washroom break; however for the residents who live here, it is peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of nearby towns and cities and the gateway to various outdoor activities that attract people from all over the globe.

A worthy visit for anyone wanting to change up the pace of their journey…

  1. I drove to BC in 2005 and camped in the Lillooet River area. This brings back memories.
