day 4 – 5. July 2017

A seemingly never ending valley

In the morning we follow Crowsnest Hwy #3 and finally leave the Manning Park. The Highway leads us through a seemingly endless valley and we enjoy the wideness of the valley. We only see a few cars on the way.

At Keremos we leave Hwy #3, change to Hwy #3a and continue towards Kamloops. Here we are in the middle of a huge fruit growing area. Numerous sales stands line the roadside. We also buy local fruit here. Finally the Hwy #3a leads us on the Okanagan Highway #97.

We continue through the Okanagan Valley through the small towns of Penticton, Summerland and Peachland until we finally reach Kelowna. Kelowna is really big and offers a lot of shopping possibilities. Then we continue on Hwy 97 to our destination today, Ellison Provincial Park. The campground is situated at a beautiful lake. Shortly before the campground we see some deer.

Very close to our campsite there is a path to the beach. We take the opportunity and go directly for a swim.

Campground: Ellison Provincial Park, Site #61, CAD $  32,30 (with showers)

forward to day 5
