We slept so well at our campground last night.  We woke up to clearing skies and made our way to Revelstoke for a walk around town. Stopping for a cup of tea, we checked our messages while we could, then drove on to Mt. Begbie Brewery to pick up that growler bottle I was looking for.  Leon picked up an extra as a souvenir.  We didn’t try any of the beverages as we had some driving to do.

Yes, that is Mt. Begbie in the background. No, we didn’t sample any beer. It was noon and we had some kilometres to put behind us.

We stopped at Rogers’ Pass along the way to examine the artillery guns and take in the view.  That drive from Revelstoke to Golden is so lovely with a number of snowy peaks to look at.  I counted that we would be passing or entering 7 National Parks on this part of the voyage to Lethbridge.  That’s a lot of natural beauty!

Rogers’ Pass and the majestic Mt. Sir Donald. The drive is always spectacular!

We are at Dry Gulch Provincial Park this evening.  Leon tried out his hammock between 2 sturdy trees.  We had a simple dinner of eggs, bacon, potatoes and a green salad.  I like to use up my ingredients and come up with interesting menus.

The road from Golden to Radium Hot Springs follows the Columbia River.  The views are striking with mountains continuously framing either side and the river and a great number of ranches in the center.  I’ve never travelled this road before, so it was a great chance to see this part of BC.

Tomorrow, we hope to visit the hot springs before continuing south to Cranbrook and heading west to Lethbridge.  We have a very loose schedule, so there is no telling where dinner will be served on Thursday.

The hammock was quite comfy but honestly, those this remind you of a pea in a pod? The rain started about a minute later.
