We woke up to a very warm morning yesterday, although I could tell we had some really low cloud the minute I walked out the door for my walk and it was still dark. It was sad doing my final walk around the park 😦 but we plan on being back next year!
After my walk I sat down with my laptop and coffee and opened up our local on-line news site only to be greeted with “Snowfall Warning For The Coquihalla” … that’s not what we wanted to see! Fortunately it wasn’t expected to start until the afternoon so we packed up quickly and hit the road a little earlier than planned.
Before hitting the Coquihalla we had to make it over the Connector and that stretch of highway is 400 metres, 1320 feet, higher than the Coquihalla.
We did hit thick fog and temperatures hovering on the freezing mark at the summit but other than that the roads were in good shape with just a skiff of snow along the sides.
Coming down off the Connector into Merritt, B.C. the fog cleared but the rain became heavier.
Traffic was very heavy and the roads were wet but other than that it was a really good trip and we made it safely to Abbotsford, B.C. PHEW, that was the hard part of the trip!
Now that Maxx is on the coast we should have an easy drive south as there are no higher mountain passes to cross. Tomorrow we will fly to Edmonton for a week of visiting and warm squeezy hugs 🙂
Until next time …
