Today we headed west over Yellowhead Pass and arrived at Mount Robson, the Rockies tallest peak at 12,989 feet (3,959 metres).

Stopped to take in the scenery at Pyramid Lake, then enjoyed lunch on the verandah of a  local restaurant.

No wet paws for these two!

Today has been quite leisurely as our next destination is not far away and back in the coach once more, we followed the Thompson River as we descended through the Columbia Mountains and arrived at our accommodation for the night, Sun Peaks Grand Hotel.

Sun Peaks is Canada’s second largest ski resort and we found the village absolutely charming.  We were surprised at the number of people staying there in summer, but then we discovered that there are many activities in the absence of snow, such as golfing, biking and hiking.   Shops, bars and restaurants are all within easy walking distance and we enjoyed our time here very much.
