In 1979 I accepted a teaching position in Fernie. I moved here from Vancouver, not liking the city life and decided that Fernie was where I wanted to be. I think it was only a few days before I was off exploring. A long term interest in history and geology attracted me to Wild Horse Creek, site of a big gold rush in 1863.
