Soon the historical marker for the ranch appeared beside the road,
we crossed the Nicola River
then onto the "home quarter" which includes a place of worship.
John had noticed a 'wiggly-line' on his forestry map that appeared to join the Ranch to Lake Okanagan's Westside Road on a local Indian band's reservation, so finding it was our plan, and soon we were on it, heading E, and DOWN...!
(By that time I had been able to turn my jacket from LOW to OFF...
Where this pic was taken the side of the road disappears down a 'scree' slope a few hundred feet, probably ONE good rain-storm away from heading down TOO...!
Below, along the road, BOTH sides of the mountains are just a jumble of boulders. Scary looking, but eventually the descent leveled off
and 15 minutes later we arrived onto West Side Road, and PAVEMENT...!
Another hour of 'not-dusty-riding' (remember I was riding in dust the whole day as only John had the route in HIS GPS!), and we arrived at home.
When I gassed-up, my fuel mileage worked out to 78 mpgImperial (62.4 mpgUS), but quite a bit was 'slogging' along at lower speeds....
Took me several hours Thursday to wash that dust off the GREEN HORNET TOO....
