as we climbed to the top of Loup Loup Pass..one last look at the Methow Valley..

..a spider had joined us for the journey, using Bart as a landing pad for his ‘spider web’..

Once we arrived at the top of Loup Loup..4020 feet..

..we ‘kicked the spider ‘ to the curb …IMG_2179

We arrived in Omak, Washington about an hour later and stopped at the last USA Walmart, purchasing some of our groceries for our next stop..

A gas fill up in Oroville and we were crossing the border back to the land of red and white..

Thanks for the hospitality, USA..we enjoyed our stay..

A quick stop in Osoyoos for some fresh produce and lunch and we headed up Richter Pass and down the other side into the Similkameen Valley..

By late afternoon we had arrived at our next ‘home’ ..Riverhaven RV park on Highway 3, just west of the small town of Hedley, BC..
