Day 6: Texas Creek Provincial Park to Crawford Bay (Kootenay

I was up early, hoping to make Paulson Summit before the heat set in. My plans were to head for Nelson, somewhere I had always wanted to visit, if I could make it that far and take my first rest day. It turned into a very long day!

Johenstone Creek Provincial Park—the day's start
Day 5: Johnstone Creek Provincial Park to Christina Lake

If yesterday was a tough day, today was not the most enjoyable. The distance ridden was not large, and the climb quite gentle, but it was very hot, with the heat hitting as I closed in on Grand Forks. Today surpassed the heat of the previous day.
