May 23 - 1,000KM Christina Lake - West Kootenays

1,000 km covered. We have come through the gold, silver and copper mining boom and bust towns of Hedley, $48,000,000 worth of gold extracted in the early 20th century, Phoenix and Greenwood, which is BC's smallest city. We followed the meandering Kettle River from Rock Creek to Christina Lake. Shawn and I spent a week canoeing this river in 1994. At Midway we enjoyed an antique car show with some very beautiful classic cars from the 1920's to the 1950's, all  in immaculate condition. Spent a lazy Saturday afternoon at Christina Lake. A little snow remains on the mountains.
