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.

Happy happy.

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.

Columbia River

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.
