Welcome to more about the Kootenays. In the 1970's I lived for about eight years in Kaslo BC, on the shore of Kootenay Lake about 55 km from Nelson. Kaslo is a fascinating little town and has provided many gifts including a livelihood as an artist / designer. It's also the fictionalized setting for a series of linked short stories one of which I published to this blog in September. Below you can visit Kaslo in an article I wrote for Western Living Magazine back in 1980. I think the published version is probably shorter and more to the point, but if you have the time, join me on a ramble through historic Kaslo town. (Brackets indicate asides in present time.)
