Metaline, WA and Nelson, BC via Spokane
- Beka Dec 5, 2006 04:53 AM
We are heading to both places(coming from the Spokane area) this weekend. We want to see the falls but plan to stay in Nelson.
Any must see/do/eat along the way and in/around Nelson?
It's short trip Thursday-Sunday, driving in and back.
Any suggestions would be great!
For Nelson, a search in the Canada section (or western Canada?) should turn up a some threads. Nelson is reputed to be the Birkinstock distribution center for all of SE BC, and has a matching food scene.
Between Spokane and Nelson there isn't much, except some nice views, and a few small towns. The Moon Handbook for Washington mentions a bakery and cafe next the historic hotel in Metaline Falls.
Someone posted something about Karen's Kitchen in Kettle Falls having legit huckleberry pancakes, but I haven't been up to try it. My mom says it's pretty much a culinary wasteland up there (she lives in Ione, near Metaline).
