This month I’d like to share with you a life-changing revelation that hits me every year around my birthday. It started when I turned forty.

Fernie Valley Pathway

In 2004 part of this vision was realized with the construction of the Fernie Centennial Trail – a gravel surfaced trail from West Fernie to Riverside Way.
