Five Reasons to Stop at Field BC

My experiences with Field, BC have been mostly limited to driving by it. Normally by that point in my voyages east, I was road-weary and just wanting to get to Banff or Calgary.

There are however, a few reasons to exit the highway and enjoy your self.

  1. Burgess Shale. About 1/2 a billion years ago, this part of BC was an ocean. The Burgess Shale is the largest fossil collection.
  2. Emerald Lake Lodge. The view of the mountains and lake is to die for. (Worth the 20 minute drive from Field.)
  3. Truffle Pigs Bistro. Just the name makes me want to go again.
  4. Yoho National Park. It might take longer than an afternoon to check out any of the 1310 sq. km.
  5. Picnicking at Takakkaw Falls, which is 25 minutes from Field in Yoho National Park.
