We said goodbye to Alberta and moved into the Rockies. Fort Steele is a heritage town in the East Kootenay region, located north of the Crowsnest Highway along Highways 93 and 95, 10 miles northeast of Cranbrook. Arriving at Fort Steele, we decided to spend the night and explore the historic site. Many of the buildings are original, some allowed to collapse and let nature take its course. Others have been carefully restored to allow visitors a peek at life back in the day.
