|Going up Roger's Pass through many tunnels|
There have been many adventures since I've last posted. Right now I am relaxing at a friend of Jim's in Vernon. I got more laundry done and have swam in the pool.

We made it to Golden, which was an 80 km ride from Lake Louise in a record 4 1/2 hours! What a blast, downhile for a lot of the way.
We camped in Golden at the Municipal campsite. We had our bikes cleaned at the shop for cheap. Sorry for the repeat, but now that I can post photos, I can do a much better post about it.

|Jim's bike 'Ginger' needed a new tire in Revelstoke|
We left Revelstoke with good weather and more downhills. We are descending from the Rockies into the Okanogan. As we biked lower the hotter it was.

Woot! I laid down on the grass..thinking that they would be full. Jim had been trying to get a campsite along Mara Lake but the sites were all full and wouldn't even take one more bicyclist. I walked into the office not expecting to get in, and the lady said that they were all full! What?!! Ok, that's it, I'm ready to find a place in the bush anywhere along the highway, I don't care! It's too freakin hot!
Ah, the joke was on me! Jiim got her to say that and she had hidden the reciept. Darn! What a joker he is!
The first place that I headed to was the pool! Then I set up camp.
|Was I EVER so happy to find this campsite with a pool!|

We rode a short 65 kms today to Vernon and are staying at a friend's of Jim's. They have a pool which is nice. Tomorrow we will visit with the father of the organizer of Tour De Jasper, before riding 125 or so to Penticton
