In the beautiful country between Revelstoke and Sicamous, an important historic site lies just off Highway 1. In Gaelic, Craigellachine means rocky hill and also a malt whisky from a town of the same name in Scotland. Here in BC, it marks the spot where the Last Spike was driven in 1885 to complete the sea-to-sea railway, the CPR. Today Canadian Pacific freight trains still travel this line. A small museum commemorates the place. In the picture below, a railroad worker's hammer lies in the foreground. Almost too heavy for me to lift, this is what the folk hero John Henry swung in the famous song.
