    Leaving Revelstoke the Trans-Canada climbs over the Eagle Pass @ 550 m elv. in the Monashee range and down to the 3 Valley Gap.

   Watch for a gravel road on the left (heading west ). About 5 kms will take you to a pretty waterfall called Frog falls.

   Notice the pusher locomotive in the middle of the train and also at the rear.  Its a 150 car freight, on the Prairies it will add another 50 cars.

             Crazy Creek waterfalls and suspension bridge comes up next.

           Over priced for me, and lots of stairs.

  From Sicamous to Salmon Arm is 30kms by #1 the Trans-Canada hwy,   There is a nice drive on a loop by hwy#97a and #97b and its only 14 more kms longer.

  Down pass Mara lake you will soon see the Enderby Cliffs over to the east. Great hiking spot.

    Turning back to Salmon Arm on #97b near the intersection with the Trans-Canada is the Haney village and museum.

    From Canoe on the east to Sorrento in the west, driving through Salmon Arm can be real slow.

    You will not notice it if you are a tourist dawdling around, but if your travelling from say Vancouver to Calgary and beyond,its the slowest part of the journey.  Road improvements have been in the works since 2013 and I hear that they will start early 2021.

    I,ve never had more than a few quick stops here, but if you have the time there is some nice places along the lake.

   At Tappen, just west of Salmon Arm, a road on the right ( lake side ) called Sunnybrae will take you to Herald P.Park @14 kms. There is a nice trail that leads to Margaret Falls.

   Watch out for a great Viewpoint of Shuswap Lake at the top of a Grade. Trouble is I cant remember if its after you pass Sorrento heading west,or east of Tappen. :-\

   Anyway, you soon come to Little Shuswap lake and the town of Chase,but just before that there is a pull off where I have stopped to exercise the dog after driving from Vancouver.
   A little, not marked trail beside a creek that heads up Mt.Boysee.

   After Chase its a flat run along the South Thompson river all the way to Kamloops.
