Hope, BC – Chainsaw Capital of the World

A week ago I took a mini-vacation to Hope, BC.  It is only about an hour and forty-five minute drive from Mom’s place in Bellingham. That makes it an excellent destination for me.  Years ago, Wayne and I landed at the Hope Airpark to camp after attending the Abbotsford Airshow. This trip was a solo getaway by car.

Hope boasts that it is the Chainsaw Carving Capital of the World.  That must be true. Everywhere around town you’ll find fabulous sculptures.

Here’s a nice video by showing the results of the 2012 Chainsaw Championships.  Looks like the 2013 event has been cancelled. I’m not sure why. — Margy
