Good Bye USA...Hello Canada

Along route # 97(Okanogan, Omak) we again rode through apple valley and the Indian reservation.

These towns are located in a valley trapping most of the days heat and coolness of the nights. Ideal are for apple growth. Rains are also intermittend. It was quite hot here: 90 degrees and had to shed our mountain layers.

We entered the Canadian border at Oroville, WA. Could not locate NightHawk; a small border crossing on the GPS(didn't carry a Washington State map). It was Sunday and the border crossing at Oroville was empty. Customs admired our rig than asking the customary crossing questions.

Rolling along Canada route 97; 97C; 5a and 5 toward Kamloops, BC

This couple made contact with us back in Washington State and wanted to see the rig when passing through. We called them and gave them a lookee, shared sidecar stuff.

They are in their 60's and still ride ravenously in the dirt. Wife mans the leaning sidecar while he zooms through thick and thin. AMAZING!
