Yoga Retreats In Kootenay Bay
Prior to 1902, Kootenay Bay served only as a flag stop for paddlewheelers. In 1908, there was a pack trail to Crawford Bay and Gray Creek which was later upgraded to a wagon trail in 1912, but the steep terrain kept Kootenay Bay quite isolated.The Fraser family, after emigrating in 1912, ended up owning a lot of the land in the area, and in the 1920s started the first commercial and agricultural development at Kootenay Bay. During the 1920s and 30s, there were about 25 permanent residents, most of whom were ranchers and fruit growers.
