This morning we headed south from Nelson to join Hwy 3 back east.

Now I was not looking forward to a trip on Hwy 3.  We have driven it before with frustration.  A winding two lane road that was notorious for the evil RVers and trailer-dragers that prided themselves on ignoring the turn outs and counting the number of cars they could pile behind them.

Fortunately the province has been busy over the last few years adding passing lane so it turned out to be a nice drive.

We diverted a bit to visit Trail and Rossland before heading to Ossoyoos and turning south to Washington.  By the time we crossed into the US the temp was 100 F but as we turned west towards Winthrop and climbed into the mountains it cooled.  Very comfortable sitting around the pool this evening.
