Checked into our hotel, we set off to accomplish some errands, gas up the car and grab pizza and wine for supper in the room. The first task was easy, but as this was a Monday, our first pizza place choice was closed. We opted for another location….right next to the wine store. Yay for us.
Valemount is a village municipality of 1,018 people in east central British Columbia, Canada, 320 kilometres (200 mi) from Kamloops, British Columbia. It is between the Rocky, Monashee, and Cariboo Mountains. It is the nearest community to the west of Jasper National Park, and is also the nearest community to Mount Robson Provincial Park, which features Mount Robson, the tallest mountain in the Canadian Rockies. Outdoor recreation is popular in summer and winter—hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, mountain biking and horseback riding are common activities. Valemount is one of 14 designated Resort Municipalities in British Columbia.
As a flag stop Via Rail’s Canadian calls at the Valemount railway station two or three times (depending on the season) per week in each direction.
The name Valemount was coined for the C.N.R. station there in 1927 from the words “vale” and “mount.”
While we waited for our supper to be ready, we did a short walk in Valemount and looked at the surrounding scenery.

Reforested area looks like a planted crop, all in neat rows.
A few colours of autumn around the town.
Errands accomplished, we headed back to our hotel to dine and relax. It was a nice place to break our trip.
The next morning, we awoke to find a covering of ice on the car. Apparently, rain + freezing temps = ice.
The good news was there was no snow on the roads.
We grabbed some food from the breakfast bar and a coffee from Timmies and we were on our way, once again.
