I woke up with the sun the next morning.
After the regular morning routine I was back on the bike in the cool air of the desert morning.
Following the Trans-Canada I headed East for 83km heading for Kamloops.
It was cool and the kilometres were easy after the feeding I had enjoyed the prior evening.
The hills were short and stretched over long distances so I was able to make good time with little effort.
Passing through a landscape that has been the backdrop for many western movies over the years filled my head with images of outlaw posses and gun fights.
At one point I cycled right passed a ghost town by the name of Deadman Junction that looked like It was right out of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
After a few hours I found myself in a small lakeside town named Savona where I rested for lunch.
After an hour of rest I continued on my way, climbing through more sandstone hills and eventually, in the heat of the day, I ended up in Kamloops.
Knowing I had some nasty, very slim hard shoulders ahead of me, I decided to make a stop at a bike shop where I purchased a mirror so I could see traffic approaching behind me.
I reached out to a friend who lives in the city and made arrangements to camp in her yard. (Two easy camp spots in a row!).
We spent the evening catching up over a few beers and sharing stories!
