Dunster, British Columbia, Canada
We hope you will learn a bit more about our friendly community nestled in the Robson Valley between the peaks of the majestic Rocky Mountains and the Cariboo Range in east-central British Columbia.
The main purpose of this site is to provide information and entertainment for locals - at least, those with phone service and computers and time away from milking, haying, stacking wood, shovelling snow, and simply surviving. If you've made it this far, welcome and congratulations! Once you've looked around, let us know what you would like to see here. There's a lot more to come, and we welcome ideas of any kind. Just email us with suggestions, comments, critiques, and corrections.
By clicking on the links at the top of the page, you can take a short trip to see more of Dunster and to learn what keeps us busy and happy in our wonderful mountain hideaway!
