Hope BC charging and chain saw carvings

August 31, 2017


Our last charge up on our journey home was an overnight stop over in Hope BC. Hope is a bit of a hub southern B.C. highways. Hope is at the southern terminus of the Coquihalla Highway and the western terminus of the Crowsnest Highway, locally known as the Hope-Princeton (Highways 5 and 3, respectively), where they merge with the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1). Hope is at the eastern terminus of Highway 7.



Hope is a municipality of the forward electric vehicle adopter  Fraser Valley Regional District.


Hope has several EV charging opportunities including Superchargers for Teslas. We chose to use the Sun Country level 2 charger that is installed on Wallace Street by the Hope District Hall. This charger was a short walk to the motel we stayed in as well as being in the town chore with a park, shops, restaurants and wooden carvings.



Hope has been named the Chainsaw Carving Capital. A great way of exploring Hope is strolling around the streets and looking at all carvings on display around the town. There are over 30 carvings standing in front of buildings, at parks and on street corners. Many of the carvings are intricate depictions of wildlife.



You can also play movie buff/tourist with the Rambo walk around the little town. Rambo was filmed in Hope.
