Canmore is a town very close to our hearts that was also hit hard by the flooding. But last weekend we returned to our beloved Canadian Rocky town!
Highway 1 leading to Canmore had been shut down due to the roads being washed out – keeping us away from Canmore for weeks. We were really missing hanging out in Canmore!
But first…..more packing. What you say?! Where are you going now??? Welllllll, for the week of Stampede, we packed up our vintage western wear to sell in Canmore at Stonewaters in downtown.
Keep working!!!! On the way to Canmore we stopped by the shipping container in Exshaw which was destroyed by the floods. The silty mud that flooded Exshaw is now dried + blowing around the town, giving it an eerie ghost town look.
Here is a picture I took a month ago of Jeff across the street from Karen + Kyle’s house next to the now infamous Cougar Creek that was raging during the flood. The embankment he is standing on in this picture is now completely gone.
Check out this video of Cougar Creek during the flood – this happened all across the street from Karen + Kyle’s house.
Luckily, their house was spared! Jeff, Karen, Juna + I hiked to the top of the hill across from the house to get a higher view of the damage + reconstruction. Yikes! Be careful, Jeff! Back away from the edge!!!
Fun times. Glamorous, no? I had the idea to paint a sign on a pallet board advertising our vintage western wear. Let’s just say that I was winging it + failed epically. “Jeff!!! Save the sign!!! PLEASE!!!!” I whined.
Oh man, close call!!! The finished project – look how wonky + sad the Vintage font is + Jeff’s stellar retro western font!!! SAVED!! Go to Stonewaters + check out our stuff!!
What a fashionista!!! Canmore, it’s great to be back!!!
