We were told its best to stop at Kamloops on the way to Jasper. Since I booked most of our travel online though Hotwire, I got a 5 star resort in SunPeaks, the Delta Sun Peaks resort. It’s about half an hour from Kamloops but since Kamloops didn’t look to enticing, we decided to check it out. (It has been a beautiful drive so far. The mountains change all the time. Sometimes it is so lush and green but at other time it looks like the desert. )
When we entered our rooms there was a strange odor. I was about to ask for a different room but we realized when we walked out the door that that was the smell of the resort. Not sure yet if it is chlorine or water or mold….. Anyway, we headed out, after a salad at the bar, for a walk. The featured band in the courtyard was performing Abba, in full gear and all the guest and their kids were dancing about. We followed our ears… some good rock and roll but there were signs posted everywhere that said private party. We tried to crash the wedding but managed to get ourselves promptly kicked out. We opted for the bar across the way that had big screen TV’s with girls wrestling in goo. Did get a good tip on a hike to a waterfall. Looking forward to the morning.
Okay...the hike tip was worth it. Here are some pics of the waterfall, the mist on our faces was just what we needed to wake up for the long drive ahead.
