Penticton or Bust

At 6am on Sunday morning, we hit the road for Canada!  We arrived Tuesday late morning...here are a few stops and sights along the way.

Nigel and I put our game faces on, in the dark, in my driveway at 6am

Mount Shasta area

Back side of Shasta

Burning off some steam in a beautiful dogpark in Bend, Oregon


Another important highlight in the trip to Bend

Sunset in Yakima, Washington

10pm and Max is finally getting dinner in the motel. "Don't bother me, I'm eating."

Canyons and lakes in Washington


Canadian border

They let us in!

A pretty lake on the drive in to Penticton

Okanagan Lake - the swim course

Proof we made it: The Peach!  The swim start/finish are right behind this and transition right nearby

I'm pretty tired after 3 days of road tripping, travel food, etc.  Hoping to settle in and just relax and enjoy our BEAUTIFUL house right near the lake/downtown/IM village for the next few days.

Beautiful pics! And, of course, I couldn't help but notice your husband's ASU shirt. I didn't even know we had a rugby team! We'll be cheering for you on Sunday!
