(My solo road trip of western Canada – Friday 2nd October)
I got up this morning and had this urge to get as much done as possible. I knew I would have a lot of driving to do, but I was determined to cover as much distance as possible and see as many places as I could. From Kelowna towards Banff National Park was well over 4oo kms, but with the stops I had planned, I would be on the road all day.
I started making my way towards Mount Revelstoke National Park. It is located adjacent to the city of Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada. This park was founded in 1914 and is relatively small for a national park, it only covers about 100 sq miles.
I was due to stay here, however, as I was doing well for time, I cancelled my accommodation to keep going as I realised that this stop was not needed, I would advise anyone making a similar journey to just keep going if you can, and if the weather conditions allow make the most of your time. I was thankful for this as it would not have been worth staying here, there was not much happening for me here, the setting was quite nice and again, the changing trees were very nice, but I wanted to make the most of the day, so I stopped for a bite to eat and was on my way again…
