Only 162 miles to go today so we weren’t in a hurry. We awoke to sunny skies but it was still pretty chilly. Packed up and on the road by 9:30.
Getting closer to Vernon.
A lot nicer day than last Thursday when we came up this way.
Vernon, like the rest of Okanagan is now hugely busy.
Highway 97 heading up towards Falkland and then on to Kamloops.
Pretty farming area with lots of old buildings.
There was a huge fire in this area a number of years ago and they are still cutting the wood.
Not spring here either. When we pass this way most years it is all nice and green.
This old barn would have a lot of memories and it’s on it’s last legs.
To the right you see water but it is not a lake. This is a huge hay field that is still under spring run off. In other years there has been a little water but now it looks like a huge lake. Not good news for this year’s hay crop.
We’ve come by Kamloops and up over the big hill out of town. It’s always amazing to us that our truck can pull the big beast attatched to it’s rear up these huge hills! Good truck. Turn right for Cache Creek.
Only 71 km’s to go and it’s time to stop for lunch.
Pretty through here and mostly hay land. If you have water…you can grow hay because it hardly ever rains here.
Nice and green here. Must be alfalfa to be that bright.
We stop at the look out on Kamloops lake for lunch.
Pretty spot and today it’s not even freezing cold.
Heading down towards Savona.
Lots of stuff to look at here. All very neat and organized. Eric always says he’d like to stop but….never seems to be time.
Spring run off and this creek is really muddy.
Beautiful craggy mountains.
Coming into Cache Creek.
We pulled into the Brookside RV park around 2:30 and were soon parked. Picked our own spot and will go up to pay later. The creek isn’t as high as it was the last time we were here. That time we thought we’d get trapped in the park and moved to higher ground in Clinton.
Beautiful, sunny and 18C. We haven’t been this warm since we left Alamo, Nevada.
Some full timers at one end of the park but not many others.
Hooked up and ready for a nice afternoon. It will soon cloud over and we are expecting a rainy drive to Prince George tomorrow.
