Through 2018, ZenSeekers is teaming up with partners in the Rockies region. Our correspondents will bring you exceptional video, photos and stories to inspire you to #ExploreBC and have your very own #RockiesExploring adventures.
If you were to tell a friend you were going to the mountains of Fernie what would come to mind? Images of challenging multi-day treks in alpine wilderness, fearless climbs up huge rock walls, adrenaline-pumping mountain trail riding or daring white-water rafting?
Sure, you can do all of that in this part of B.C. But look deeper and you'll find that Fernie has a more peaceful side flowing through it and that there's another way to experience the region. I took a trip there recently to check out its gentler side and discovered that you really can get in touch with nature and find mindfulness in the mountains.
Fernie is a historic town located in southeast British Columbia, nestled within the Kootenay region of the Canadian Rockies. This is a community built on hard work but also with a deep connection to nature and a big part of people’s everyday lives. Surrounded by the peaks of the Lizard Range, Three Sisters and Mt. Hosmer, I felt peace and contentment in this mountain oasis.
