Love the cabana look--how very clever! Thanks for posting.

I blew the pic up but couldn't tell--are those just regular shower rod hooks you've used?

Closer to the Lake

After the Rally we did move closer to the Lake , there was one Escape 17 just below us , only ones left . Unfortunately there was a brush fire up the hill above the Cultural Centre . Spent some time watching at least three planes and a helicopter .

On to Radium

After leaving Osoyoos drove to Radium to enjoy the hot springs . Left a day earlier than planned because of weather issues and the possibility of not getting home much later than planned due to potential highway closures . Rather than taking Trans Canada we rerouted through the Crowsnest . We were lucky !

At Radium

Surprises us when we meet people who camp at Radium , but aren't familiar with Redstreak , the sites are spacious and well treed - plus the neighbours are interesting .
