(My solo road trip of western Canada – Thursday 1st October)
Well, I tried to drive from Vancouver to Kelowna without stopping, and then I saw a sign saying `Hell`s Gate`, sounded interesting, so I took a slight detour and visited to see what it was all about.
If I am blatantly honest, I wouldn’t go again, I was happy I made this visit as it was another aspect of the gorgeous British Colombia that I got to see, however, I was looking forward to the Air tram which for me, was a bit of a let down.
Other than that, the history of this place is fascinating and it really makes you appreciate how people in the past ventured out on unknown territory not knowing where it would take them but what delights it would uncover for future generations. One of the most interesting facts for me was how high the water was, if you look at the photo of the red bridge, you can see a white sign, this highlights where the water level was, it was in 1948 and the water level was over 70m high! Below you will see plenty of interesting facts of information about this place and its history.
