kelseydo road trip

My boyfriend, brother and I decided to take a quick road trip out to the Okanagan to visit our friend in Vernon for the long weekend. The boys took their bikes and I took the support car.

On the way there we took the 1 & the 3 which took us from Vancouver-Hope-Princeton-Penticton-Kelowna-Vernon. We left at 10am and got there at 6pm. It was long.

On the way back we took the 1 & 97 & 99 through Salmon Arm-Kamloops-Lillooet-Whistler to Vancouver. We left at 9am and got there at 7pm. It was longer.

Next time: Coquihalla (5 hours 25 minutes)

It was really cool to see the scenery change so much from the coast of BC to the interior. My favorite part of the trip was driving from Lillooet to Whistler. The landscape was epic and the road was really fun to drive on- a little sketchy but barely any cars and lots of cliffs.

Besides the drive, we had an amazing weekend! It was super hot but we beat the heat by wake boarding, cliff jumping and tubing down the river.

kelseydo Wine Tour

Nick + I went with a couple friends to Oliver for the weekend. It was epic! We drove in during a thunder storm which was pretty exciting, and spent our days wine touring.

We ended up going to Tinhorn Creek, Hester Creek, Stoneboat, Burrowing Owl + Church and State. There are sooo many wineries in and around Oliver that it was hard to pick the right ones to visit, luckily we got some tips.We will have to go back to try them all!
