Overlooking Columbia Lake, Kootenays BC. The start of the Columbia River system that terminates in Oregon.

I just rode the GAP and 1/2 of the C&O this week. Peak fall colors on the GAP trail and the C&O was almost there. I got a one way car rental from Baltimore to Pittsburgh. Left Pittsburgh on Tuesday around 2pm. I made it past Williamsport, unfortunately the nights were very cold especially on the western side of the Allegheny Plateau. Damp 35F/2C each night. I had my summer bag and I was chilly in the bag. It is hard enough sleeping near the trains but cold feet made it worse. I threw in the towel yesterday, day 4 as the rains fell and temps were once expected to be in the 30's. I have a head cold today so it was a good call to return. Great trip nonetheless. The colors were superb, I rode completely self contained, water and pit toilets were still available on both trails, campgrounds were in good shape. I usually ride ultra light but used panniers to accommodate food/cooking stuff and my puffy jacket. Used everything I took Here are few pixs.

Right along the GAP? If so, I saw three pea hens with chicks last month. There were also Guinea fowl behind some bushes making a racket.

Yes the GAP, nearing the Eastern Conti divide. Apparently they were part of the large farm along the trail.

No pictures, near the end of a very long day. There were a few of them. I thought they were turkeys from a distance. I also saw turkeys later on the C&O section. Sorry

Take a look at the other side of the road. Pumpkins as far as you could see. The field was about a quarter of a mile long where it followed the road.



This is not a very good picture, but it will give you a sense of scale.

Doug, If I had to guess I would say maybe... Yellowhead Hwy north out of Kamloops somewhere near Barrier?

You are pretty close. It is on the Trans Canadian Highway just east of Kamloops. As your pictures shows, it is beautiful in that area.

We were tempted to take Highway 5 and 5A from Hope to Kamloops, but after looking at the elevation profile, decided to take the "easy" way.

Crossing PA last month. For a couple of days, smoke all the way from western fires partially obscured the sun. The morning after I took this I could really smell it when I dropped down into a valley.
