We left Soap Lake, Washington this morning and were on the road around 8:30 am. A bit cloudy but no rain so all was well. We really love the area and are always amazed at the landscape.
Heading out of Soap Lake.
When we’re sitting in the RV park in Soap Lake we always speculate about where the RV’s are going when they are heading north. Lots of them are parking at the edge the lakes to fish.
Overlooking Dry Falls.
We will head West on 2 and then North on 17.
Pretty straight on 17….and quiet as well.
What the heck are those cows eating? Well…they’re not skinny so they must be doing okay.
Getting ready to head over the Chief Joseph Dam.
We have never seen water coming over the dam.
Lots of water!
Getting far enough north in Washington to see fruit trees. Who is pruning and spraying them…Mexicans of course.
Junction from 17 to 97 North.
We will follow 97N all the way home to Terrace.
When we stopped for fuel this was the ironwork decoration in front of the station.
Coming into Tonasket.
Oroville, Washington and then we were at the border.
The nice young lady at the border asked about cigarettes (none), alcohol (we had the allowable amount of beer) guns (none) and did we have any repairs to the truck or trailer. Eric explained the tire blow-out and replacement of tires and she could see the damaged tire in the back of the truck. That was it….have a nice day! Wow…that was a pleasant experience. A welcome change.
Grape vines in Canada.
Our lunch stop just north of Vaseaux Lake. A bit noisy but okay.
Arrow leaf balsamroot growing everywhere at this time of year. http://www.kelowna.ca/CM/page128.aspx Kelowna’s official floral emblem.
Coming down through “West bank” now known as West Kelowna. Every six months when we pass through there is more, and more, and more commercial and retail space going up. Actually….pretty ugly!
Over Okanagan lake on the new bridge. Three lanes going out of Kelowna and two lanes coming in.
Here we are snug as a bug tucked into Ian and Linda’s driveway.
