We Head North to Clearwater and a Great Spot

Sunday morning we drove packed up and headed north on the 97 The first part of this leg of our journey was through wine country up to Kelowna. There are suppose to be around 120 wineries in this area but it seems like a lot more. Grapes filled the hills everywhere and we kept seeing signs for wineries and wine trails. We also passed a bicycle race and there were a lot of riders. Joe really had to be extra careful sharing the road with so many bikers so close on our side. We were glad to finally pass them all

We drove through Kelowna and a number of small towns and then on through Kamloops and then onto Clearwater. We found another beautiful park, North Thompson Lake Provincial Park, set in a lovely forest setting. It was late Sunday and there was hardly anyone there and so we picked a great spot right above the river. When we talked to the ranger, she said even the weekend wasn't that busy as they don't start to get real busy until the third week of June when the kids are out of school. Lucky for us.

             We took a walk around the park and down a trail to the river, which was flowing pretty fast. We felt a few rain drops and after we got back, we got some full on rain.

        We have certainly been picking campgrounds with the it factor lately. This was another spot we could spend more time in. However, we will be packing up in the morning again and making our way further north. Our next destination is Prince George.
