Paradise Mine/Paradise Ridge/Paradise Basin
The Paradise mine captured the local imagination in a way that no other mining property in the valley has quite come close to.
Mount Nelson, Invermere area
This prominent peak was the first mountain in the Windermere Valley to be named by a European. It was then renamed, renamed, and renamed again before the powers that be finally decided to return back to that first European name: after a heroic British naval commander who was also known for an extended affair with another woman while both were married.
