Kelowna

We started our fifth day buying groceries for the next couple of days. After that we lunched at Kelowna and drove beside some of the numerous wineries in the area. The rest of the day consisted of driving because of the 4 hour drive to get to Nakusp (from Penticton). We didn't mind the driving because a large part of the trip was along the beautiful Highway 6, also known as 'The Needles' because of the large number of pine trees along the road. We spent the night at Three Island Resort (camping) in Nakusp where we slept right beside Summit lake.

From downtown Kelowna, the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park is a short 25 minute drive up into the surrounding hillside through rolling vineyards and past several amazing lookout points. The road is partially paved, while the last eight kilometers are grated dirt road and quite rugged. As such, a vehicle with a higher clearance is recommended (our SUV worked well). Although we did see many cars make the trip, slower driving is a must to ensure you don’t bottom out on some of the bigger potholes. As for signage, the road is clearly marked with blue signs directing visitors to the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park and making navigation simple.
