Rolf the Woodcarver is a classic Canadian roadtrip stop for some purely awesome, original chainsaw carved pieces mostly all for sale. For a very nominal fee, children to adult can self tour Rolf’s studio-home, laugh at the hidden water soaker buttons, his goat messing about high in the outdoor tresses and of course chatting with Rolf himself. You can find his personal website in our Links Menu. He is located in the center of Radium, B.C., best noticed when at one of two facing gas stations at the lights for the intersection for Highway 93 and Highway 95. It is a split in the road about 100m east of either gas station and should be obvious.
Stages of the Cross
Not too far south on Highway 95 in Radium center is Stage of the Cross which is actually ingeniously hidden on a tranquil slope directly behind many commercial stores. Access is behind the St. Joseph Catholic Church or the Radium Mountainside Market or driving up a offshoot road of Redstreak Road behind the Chamber of Commerce.
Rockiesobscure.com is a website, therefore has no religious bend. It’s master of controls simply finds it an interesting 10 minute leg stretch and watch kids faces when they see the rather old, but well kept, at times gruesome statues of Jesus being led to the cross.
Found about 6km south of Radium on Highway 95, is a very old roadside attraction that has sat in a weathered, decrepit state for who knows how long. It is private property do not enter at all! It contains old fun buildings, a potato sack slide, and various colorful objects. On a recent ski trip to Kimberley, I saw the plaster Star Trek replica statue sitting at a residence about 50km south of here, that sat on the dirt burm fronting the property. Place would make a great horror movie set, gonna be a lost opportunity!
