A Visit of the Moyie, the World’s Oldest Intact Sternwheeler

As reported last week, we travelled with our company from Germany north to Nakusp and then turned south to the picturesque town of New Denver on Slocan Lake. Then we took the 31A to Kaslo, where we paid a visit to the Moyie, a paddle wheeler sternwheeler that worked on Kootenay Lake from 1898 until 1957. After nearly sixty years of service, she was sold to the town of Kaslo and restored. Today she is a National Historic Site of Canada and the world’s oldest intact passenger sternwheeler.
