July 19, 2020 – Creston to Cranbrook 

As I’d skipped the Trans Canada Great Trail Grey Creek Pass, today was 115km of highway.   My dullest day yet.

I was motivated, however, by the chance to visit with friends in Cranbrook I hadn’t seen in at least 5 years.

Late the night before — after dismissing another depressing RV park — I found a convenient city storage yard for camping.

Unsurprisingly, it was very close to Timmies.

I didn’t linger long in Creston because mosquitoes. But this art gallery setting is impressive.

The highway was not bad. Quite a wide shoulder.

I stopped twice for my new favourite lunch – bagel toasted on my camping stove.

The second lunch I’d set up on a gas station picnic table. Until a guy came running out to warn me about open flames near gas pumps!

Logging has not been slowed by COVID-19.

There were a few scenic vistas.

But it was nice to finally reach Cranbrook about 5pm.

I enjoyed a great meal, catching up with my hosts.

Soft bed. Hot shower. I slept well.
