Saturday, September 2, 2017 - St Regis, Montana to Osoyoos, BC.Canada  

This morning after leaving the campground we went to the next little village of St Regis for a lovely breakfast – Best omelets!  We drove west, continuing in the mountains, to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, at which point we turned north on US highway 95, with the destination of the Canadian Border.

We picked up some groceries today, after which we wondered if we could take the fruit from us, at the border.  We were the only vehicle at the border and it was very simple in that we had no fire arms! 

In Canada, we drove west on Hwy 3, which is just over the US border.  We were up and down and around more mountain today, over so many passes we lost count, and around so many curves it is amazing the steering wheel stayed on!! We followed lovely rivers, had great vista views, saw beautiful calm lakes, but saw no wildlife today.  Our biggest disappointment has been hazy skies, that are due to forest fires. Tonight the sun was even blocked, so that it appeared to be a big orange ball. 

Due to the Labor Day, holiday weekend, we were fortunate there was a cancellation at the Holiday Inn in Osoyoos, so we are in a hotel tonight – with WIFI so I can write this blog. 

However, we do know that we can stay in the SUV on this trip, if need be.
