We stopped at the top of Rogers Pass before going down into Golden, B.C. and just had to include a photo of Mount Revelstoke, a beautiful, beautiful mountain outside of its namesake town.
This trailer shot is no “Flat Stanley”. We were really there.
I had seen photos of the country and mountains around Golden and could hardly wait to see them. However, it was so smoky from fires all over the country, we could hardly see them. Disappointedly, I took some photos but I’m sure they are so much more than what the camera could capture.
Leaving Golden the next morning, we traveled in an absolutely gorgeous valley between the Canadian Rockies and the Columbia River from Golden to Fort Steele, B.C.
We spent our last night north of the U.S. border at Fort Steele, B.C. in a beautiful campground. We opened our special bottle of homemade wine given to me by a good friend/winemaker and toasted our wonderful adventure. The geranium, “Gertie” made the trip all the way with us. I scattered Mom’s ashes in Cook Inlet, Alaska. She said anywhere beautiful, she loved the ocean and loved mountains. It was all there in one beautiful package.
I hope everyone enjoyed coming along with us on this great adventure. Cross one off the “Bucket List”. From here, we travel into Montana, Idaho, back into Nevada and then Connie home to California.
p.s. We shouldn’t have any problems getting home. We had two flat tires on the 5th-wheel 20 minutes apart leaving Missoula and then discovered a problem with axle supports and had to camp in the Stevensville, Mont. Les Schwab parking lot, have a welder come the next morning to fix that and then, because we were totally out of spare tires, had to buy 4 new trailer tires. Glad we are heading home.
