Pulpit Rock

The next day of our stay in the Nelson area we decided to walk up Pulpit Rock. It is a relatively short but steep trail on the Northshore of Kootenay Lake West Arm overlooking the city of Nelson with an elevation gain of around 1300ft.

There wasn't much to look at on the way but we were rewarded with great views from the top.

Looking over the Eastern end of the city and the Orange Bridge and Lakeside Park in the foreground where we had walked yesterday.

Chahko Mika Mall is the location of the big box stores in Nelson
