On our way to Canadian Rockies, we past a town called Wallace in Idaho.
Wallace is a historic city in the Panhandle region of the U.S. state of Idaho and the county seat of Shoshone County in the Silver Valley mining district. Wallace sits alongside the South Fork Coeur d’Alene River (and Interstate 90) and the town’s population was 784 at the 2010 census.
In 2004, the Mayor proclaimed the city of Wallace, Idaho to be the center of the universe (because it can’t be proven otherwise). Today, a manhole cover represents the exact spot of the Center of the Universe, and it is celebrated yearly by the citizens of Wallace.
Columbia Icefield is huge and amazing. It felt like freezing rain when we were there, so everyone was wet and cold. Still, no one wanted to get back on the bus.
