On May 31st, I left Nelson to travel to the coast. The day began bright and sunny, an inspiring drive.
The first mountain pass is about an hour for home. Here is the top:
Descending from the Paulson Summit, the next community is Christina Lake. The land offers the lake in a spectacular surprise; the road winds around a corner, and then the lake pops into view. This sight can only be viewed one way. The charm of driving in the mountains is that the road looks completely different going the other way.
There are 5 mountain passes between Nelson and the lower mainland. Mountains everywhere.
