This was a good day. Short and sweet. It felt like mostly downhill.


We stopped for some hot pools [I think I meant hot springs] at some point. Felt great. There was a woman there so tanned she looked like a mummy.

Felt tired afterwards.


25km later, we came upon this beautiful red building (very big) and stopped for food. The chef didn’t know how to make eggs. We had grilled cheese and bean/bacon soup. And a cinnamon bun after.


Ended in Revelstoke. Stayed with a woman named Sarah, her husband Rory, their two kids Alexandra and Nelson. They had two dogs: one old and one young. And chickens.

Revelstoke was amazingly quaint and pretty.


They had a french nanny, named Ann-Flore (sp?) She was our age (around) and so we tried to chat her up.

Sarah, Phill, Ann and I played a game of scrabble (with french words) and Phill won.

  1. We were going to stay with Sarah too, that would have been funny! She told us she would be out of town but that the nanny would let us in. But then we reformatted our days and cancelled, only to actually end up riding there…and then camping…excited to read about Rogers Pass!
