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.
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.
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.
When we first started out on the road, we kept kind of a diary of where we went and what we saw. We thought it might be fun to take our diary to the next level. We hope our family and friends will enjoy it and it will help them to keep track of where the heck we are!
We are retired and lived in our motorhome from 2005-2012. Dave is retired from the Federal Government and I am just retired.
Dave rides his Harley and I knit,spin and dye fiber. We have two great kids, one on either side of the country. Our daughter is on the West Coast, and our son and his wife are on the east coast. We try to divide our time between the two but probably fail.
