July Tour - Kaslo

We made it! 11-12 hour trek - I expected the boys and I to be rather drowsy near the end of the road trip, but the road leading into Kaslo was two hours of dense forestry winding us over cliff-like terrain - it's impossible to feel sleepy in such beauty! British Columbia is breathtaking. My favourite part of the roadtrip was when we got to stretch our legs on the ferry. It took us to what we felt was going to be an island haha! We checked into Kaslo's motel in a CRAZY downpour and set up some of our gear to have a jam in our own private little cabin! It's cool how much at "home" I feel as soon as I start making music with Paul and Adam.

This morning we went over to the festival site, which has the Kootenay's mountains and Kaslo's lake as our stage's backdrop. Can't complain, right? The hotel that we are staying is JAW-DROPPING. I have my own personal private balcony that stretches out to where the live music is happening and offers a gorgeous view of the decorated mountains. It's been pouring buckets for the majority of our time here so far, but the sun came radiating through the sky for our afternoon set! There were kids playing on haystacks... shoppers milling around the festival's clothing and fresh-bread stalls... hotel guests sitting on the patio for afternoon drinks... others sitting on benches enjoying the fresh air... the first show of our tour most definitely spoke of positive energy and summer.

The guys and I just got back to the hotel from a wild river walk down a recommended trail. The river was rushing at an intensely rapid pace. It looked barrels of white and brown paint were gushing from all angles creating the most hypnotizing and deadly stream I have ever seen in my life. I have never seen anything like it before.  We got a little lost and had to create our own obscure route back to the site but I blame it on feeling dazed by the river. 

Currently, we're set up in Kaslo's Hotel Pub for a long set tonight - broken up with Canada Day Fire Works! The guys and I are absolutely drenched right now - my shoes kept foaming because I handwashed them before leaving on tour and apparently I didn't get the soap out of them hahaha. 

I'm excited for jamming with the guys later on tonight

Happy Birthday Canada!!
Love, 
Jenie
