The drive to Kamloops from Gifford was probably about as long as the drive from Seattle to Gifford in the first place. There were many beautiful sights along the way, and we took time to stop for only a couple.

Just over the border, a view of the Kettle river:

Much of the drive up was surrounded by gorgeous scenery like this.

Guido's favorite position for this trip, by the way, was passenger-side lap-dog::

The photo doesn't do it justice, but the waters of Lake Kalamalka were a beautiful shade of blue-green:

And of course, the obligatory "hotel room view" shot from our room in Kamloops:

As you can see it was fairly hazy, but also very warm...much warmer than we were expecting, to be frank. It was in the 80's (27C +) most of the time we were there.

Home sweet home:

The trip home was rainy, but very much a straight-shot. We stopped at Kathy's mom's, where the flowers were still in bloom:

For us, a long trip, but a very enjoyable one.
