July 28, 2019 – day 19
Best. Day. Yet.
Midway is the start of the famed Kettle Valley rail trail. And it lived up to billing.
It’s tranquil. Pretty.
I left a Summit Stone a challenging reach away on this pretty rail bridge.
Starting the day the trail surface was pretty good.
I stopped many times today. At this Cyclist Rest Stop, for example.
And this … doll house?
One young German cyclist I met loved all this wilderness.
Though my bike is heavy, I managed the 2% constant uphill grade quite well.
Lakes provided much of the water needed for train boilers.
Later in the day, the trail got rocky. A Mountain Bike would be superior to my hybrid.
Late in the day I stopped at Hydraulic Lake. Very pretty. The haunting call of the Loon.
A couple from Kelowna offered me water and leftover dinner. I couldn’t say no. 🙂
And did I mention the wine?
