Day 4 - Travel to Canyon Springs Resort in Revelstoke, B.C.
Prior to leaving, there was free coffee and donuts provided for us by the campground hosts
As we drove north we drove along lake Okanagan and followed the wine route. This is the area with all the vineyards and is the prime wine producing area in British Columbia.
We encountered some delays but the views over the lake were just spectacular.
Each lake was equally spectacular. They are crystal clear and surrounded by mountains, many of which were still snow covered.
For the most part, the roads were in very good condition. The beautiful Lupin seem to grow everywhere.
Of course we had to stop at the point where the last railroad spike was driven for the Canadian Pacific Railway's route between the drainage basins of the Columbia and Fraser rivers.
This is the last spike park area. Here Bill and the boys watch the last spike being driven.
Sue Schaff directs us into our spots as we arrive. It was raining lightly most of the day. This is one of the most beautiful parks I have stayed in. It is surrounded by snow capped mountains and the parking areas are all neatly trimmed grass.
Of course the resort is named for it's hot springs, so we had to give them a try. The large pool's temp was 88 degrees and the spa's temp was a hot 104 degrees. But the best part was the spectacular views from the pool.

We had two meetings on Day 4; the first was the driver's meeting to discuss the route and schedule for the following day. These meetings are held each night prior to a travel day.

The next meeting was a very fun bonfire and smore roast. Two travelers from Australia joined us for the festivities. It is amazing that 5 days ago we were all strangers, and now we are all acting like old friends. What a great group.
