  1. Very cool! Rose is a peach to follow you around all the western museums. Make sure you take her to a theatrical show 😉

    Heritage Site and Museum is another great place to stop and stretch to enjoy an informative tour of the historic buildings. In 1859, local Indians showed gold seekers the location of gold deposits in now historic Horsefly, sparking the great Cariboo Gold Rush.
