Jul 22, 2018 - Golden to Sicamous

On Friday I went through 3 national parks, Jasper, Banff & Yoho. Today I hit 2 more, Glacier & Revelstoke. I’ve been on the Trans Canada Highway since Lake Louise so the traffic has been very heavy but most of it seems to be through traffic & I was able to find parking at the places I wanted to stop. The highway goes right through the centre of Glacier National Park where there are over 100 glaciers but their main problem seems to be with avalanches. You’re not allowed to stop in an avalanche zone, even at this time of year & there were...

Canada 2018

Jul 4, 2016 - Sicamous KOA

Today we started our journey east on the Trans Canada Hwy. We drove through Hope, BC., which I remember was the region where there was a rock slide the last time I was through these parts in 1965. Today we drove through intermittent rain for much of the day, and luckily no rock slides. We've decided to camp here at the KOA for two nights, so we can take the day tomorrow to explore southward through the Okanagan Valley. I think Glenna is hoping to find a winery or two. It will be Tuesday so I will be the designated driver. We took the two...

May 26, 2016 - On to Wet Sicamous

We were relieved to wake up and find the forecast was wrong. No thunder. No rain. Mainly blue sky and puffy white clouds. We had breakfast then it did not take long to be underway as we had made preparations last night anticipating rain this morning. We drove up the road to Radium and on to Golden where we topped up the tank. The Rogers Pass can consume a lot of fuel, but today provided an easy ascent with relatively little traffic considering this is Canada's main east-west road. Revelstoke is an awkward place to refuel as the gas station...

Aug 11, 2012 - Day 109, drive to Sicamous

Day 109, Saturday, August 11, 2012 We usually try not to travel on Saturdays because there is too much local traffic out for the weekend. We left Williams Lake continuing south on the 97 through rolling green hills and pastures. There are a lot of lakes out there. We started going through towns like 150 Mile House, 140 Mile House, 100 Mile House and so on. This is the route of the original Cariboo Waggon Road (correct spelling) that took that took miners and supplies to the gold fields. The towns were all roadhouses or stage stops and were...

Jun 27, 2012 - Sicamous

Day Seven – Sicamous – 100k Sicamous was not to be where we were staying for the night. Weather changed that. So much water had come into the Shuswap because of rains that our intended campground was flooded. Sicamous didn’t fare much better. Their water had become contaminated with petroleum and even boiling the water did not make it safe. But they did have a safe place for us to stay. They allowed us to stay at the grounds of their municipal center. It was most generous of them and speaks also highly of Tour du Canada that they are able...

Checking the ditches

May 6, 2008 - Bridal Falls to Sicamous

Gino, Reba and I hiked up to Bridal Falls first thing this morning. The path is quite steep with stairs for the last section. We pulled out of our campsite about 9:30 a.m. after a delicious pancake breakfast. Fran wanted to drive the #1 highway all the way home so we turned north at Hope and followed the Fraser River to Lytton then the Thompson River to Kamloops. This is a very scenic drive, especially through the Fraser Canyon. We stopped at the Hells Canyon tramway but didn’t go down. It was hard to see much of the rapids or fish ladders...
