Bound for Route 66 to Get More Kicks!

Dear Michelle the Blue Wayfinder:

Day 1 of our southbound journey transported us to natural wonders and amazing vestiges of time.  Our first stop – breakfast at The Historic Packinghouse nourished the appetite & comforted our senses.  Surrounded by sounds of energy abound, trains rumbling in harmony with nature’s creatures ~ steelhead, big horn sheep and wondrous winged raptors all living within a sacred sanctuary where two rivers cleanse the soul.  Following Highway #8 along the banks of the crystal clear waters of the Nicola River, hoodoo spirits that tower above the canyon walls seem to welcome us to this land of enchantment that awaits to discover.  Pressing for time, a quick glimpse of Michelle’s magnificent murals speak a special language that echo an invitation from watchful eyes to stop & listen to the stories yet to be told.  
A climb up the steep Mountain Highway 97C connected our southward passage onward to the vast Okanagan Valley ending in Osoyoos at today’s destination point. 

At journey’s end, our spirits were lifted higher up to a vista that welcomes weary travelers to Spirit Ridge Resort.  This tranquil place is truly a prescription for calming the nerves and recharging the energy needed to set our sights on day #2.  Stay tuned at sunset tomorrow for another magical mystery tour…
