Was a long rest day today!
Friday at noon my 17yr old Blake and I started our hiked at the North Trail Head to Okanagan Mountain Park in Kelowna. We hiked for 7hrs to travel 17k to Commando Bay with 35lb packs each, we arrived at 7:00pm. We had just enough time to set up our tents and make supper and a fire before dark.
Saturday we were up at 6:00am for breakfast, we broke camp re-packed our packs and were back on the trail at 8:00am to hike out the South end to the Naramata / Chute Lake Trail Head. We hiked for 10hrs to travel 18k we arrived at the South Trail Head in Naramata shortly after 6:00pm.
This is a trip my boy and I will remember for ever.
I'm 55yrs old and over weight,instead of just talking and dreaming about it,I DID IT! (lost/sweated 16lbs on this hike)
Will be doing the West Coast Trail with my boy Aug 23rd with is buddy and Dad......
