As tough as it was to leave the warming waters of Fairmont Hot Springs, we hit the road once again. We were now on the 'home stretch', heading for Kelowna where we had decided to make our base. As always, the scenery was breathtaking - including the 405 metre long Park Bridge in Kicking Horse Canyon near Golden BC. In one of the rest stops, we encountered a fellow on a bicycle who was crossing Canada with a German shepherd dog in a trailer trying to raise funds for homeless and abused dogs. We spent the night in the Whispering Spruce Campground & RV Park near Golden. When we checked in, we were advised of a possible bear sighting in the campground - we did not see it but kept watch.
