|Highway 3 - Southern BC - heading to Osoyoos in the southern Okanagan.|
|Wine country in southern BC's Okanagan Valley|
|Rolling in to Osoyoos, BC|
|We took a short break at a local park on Osoyoos Lake. It was quite hot here and to be close to the water had a nice cooling effect.|
|So many rivers and streams are seen along the route.|
|This is a modern facility with a rustic look.|
|The view from the balcony of our room|
|This was posted at the Town Hall building. No one here wastes time on useless business when there is no business to take care of.|
|This sign was posted in the window of one local business.|
|This place does live up to its billing for pies and pastries. It is a fan favourite!|
|This new pedestrian bridge makes it quick to access both sides of the Methow River.|
|Common sighting in or around the town.|
|6000 feet above sea level on the most gorgeous Highway 20 in the North Cascades of Washington State.|
Highway 20 is closed during the winter months. It is a pristine highway offering some of the most incredible high mountain views seen anywhere in the Pacific Northwest. This route is deemed to be one of the best motorcycle rides in continental North America. It is clearly one of our favourites.
|We could feel the temperature change as we rolled climbed to elevations approaching 7000 feet.|
|A view from 6,000 feet.|
|Ross lake was created by the building of the Ross Dam. Three dams in this area provide the power needs for Seattle and other major towns and cities in northwestern Washington State. Silting from mineral deposits gives the lake it green colour.|
|A topographical look at the area.|
From there, we headed north on Highway 9 towards Mount Baker and Lynden . Lynden Chamber of Commerce - Home
We arrived back home at 4:00 pm after crossing back into Canada at the Lynden/Aldergrove border crossing. Our ride covered 804 kilometres. It was awesome riding weather traveling through some of this area's most scenic roads.
Thanks for dropping in.
