2010BC Day 8, The End

Day 8 wraps up the Canadian Adventure with a ride from Princeton BC to the border at Sumas, then south on SR-9. I5 and the Washington State ferry from Edmonds to Kingston and Kitsap County.

Here is where I left my comrades as I headed to the east side of Bremerton and they continued south.

2010BC Day 7

Day 7: Naksup BC to Princeton BC via Needles (free ferry ride), Vernon, Kelowna, Carmi, Osoyoos. Weather was perfect, roads were as good as it gets, even for Rob. After checking in in Princeton we rode out to Tuameen just because we could.

A wild fire between Osoyoos and Chopaka dominated the sky.

Day 6: From Invermere BC to Nakusp BC via Cranbrook, Yahk, Creston, and a free ferry ride accross Kootenay Lake to Belfour. A touch of sprinkels off and on mid-day but not a problem.

2010BC Day 5

Riding from Valemount to Invermere we crossed into Alberta and back in to BC; change time zones too. Nothing I can say will adequately describe today's ride. I can say the weather was perfect, roads and traffic were excellent; scenery was over the moon. Jasper National Park and Bamff National Part are in a word stunning. I hope these pictures will do them justice.

Mile after mile the views tried to suppass the last. For myself this was exactly the reason I ride a motorcycle.

2010BC Day 4

From Merritt BC to Valemount BC, we have ridden through the rolling scrub and entered the Canadian Rockies, with forests and peaks at every turn.

Rob wants to bring the trailer with him since someone threw it away and Steve says "NO".

2010BC Day 3

Day 3 Naniamo BC to Merritt: Including 90 min ferry ride and many miles of wonderful scenery and roads.

Yes, the fries are in a gravy hot tub.
Our ride took us from the salt air and seawater, Douglass firs and cedars of the coast to the Ponderousa pines of the Okanogan. It was perfect on the coast this morning and warm east of Whistler to Merritt.
