Cascade Locks near Portland, OR
Kelowna, BC, Canada
Today was all about getting home. We chose to drive through the middle of Washington instead of up the I-5 through Seattle and over the Coquihalla (Highway 5 and 97C) for two reasons: The border crossing near Vancouver would have very long lines on Easter Monday and a snow storm was rolling through the mountains. There are 2-3 summits on this route that are about 1700 meters or around 5600 feet. We took a pass.
Our route is relatively low and crossing the border near Osoyoos is often very quick.
After a second long day of driving we were pleased to roll up to our home near dinner time.
It's good to be home!
