oh my dear. revelstoke, british columbia. is. so. beautiful. 

i know i have been saying this a lot about every town i have posted about, but let me tell you what. this place is exceptionally magnificent. the mountains are huge. which is probably why the biggest attraction to the place is skiing and snowboarding. it is actually world famous with revelstoke mountain resort proudly boasting the longest vertical ski run in north america, the fourth longest in the world. we were there in june and there was still snow on the mountains, and not just a little. i only got a couple pictures of their majesty, but if you want to see some good ones you can visit the city website here or the resort website here. holy beautiful.

the other thing that makes this city so pretty is it's location right on the columbia river. for those of you who have never seen it, it is huge. and when there is a river in the middle of town there are always bridges which always seem to make things more beautiful. downtown revelstoke was so quaint and was home to a farmer's market that had so many unique stands. this railway city turned winter wonderland really charmed me. i loved it.

some crazy facts about revelstoke: 1) in the winter or 1971-1972 the city got just over 80 feet of snow. that's right, eight-y, not eight. so unbelievable. luckily we visited in the summer months. 2) the movie double jeopardy was filmed here, mostly featuring the town's historic courthouse. 3) the town is home to an abundant amount of professional ice hockey players.

revelstoke for me:
a walk in the rain
chocolate milk
chicken & rice
a fire by the river
sidewalk chalk
the random pictures on the walls
two a.m. seven-eleven run
espn trivia game
laundry in every province
a sunday drive in the mountains
a long sit
the angry sky
a good chat
yummy food  at emo's
