Okaganan Spring 2024

Okaganon May 2024

Quick trip out of the rain.

The dire coastal forcast had us heading East. To the Okanagan. For this trip we rode the Coutlee trails in Merritt. We were going to camp at Harmon Lakes up Kane Valley rd again but the wind and cold had us move to Bear Creek Campground in West Kelowna. This set us up for a ride in Rose Valley the next day to see how it faired after the 2023 fires. Johnny Smoke joined us for this ride on his Ebike. After this we rode in Pentiction at Three Blind Mice, then headed to Osoyoos, managed to get a campsite at Swiws to check out the trails at Kruger Mountain.
