July 25, 2019 – day 16
Reluctant to depart my perfect campsite, I enjoyed 3 large cups of camp coffee before packing up.
It was only about 12 miles to the border at Nelway, a nice crossing.
Back in Canada, eh?
B.C. has had more big hills than did the Idaho panhandle.
Coming into Trail.
I wanted to get off the highway and join The Great Trail (formerly Trans Canada Trail) as quickly as possible.
Yet I ended up on highways for the rest of the day getting to Castlegar, one Great Trailhead.
In South America I used a popular app called iOverlander that provides tips for travellers. It doesn’t have much data for North America, but I did use it in Castlegar to find camping.
A nice spot.
For the first time in decades I had some knee pain. … Worrisome.
