Continuing what is turning into a rather magical tour of the westward northern US and southern Canadian states and provinces, we left our delightful Blue Mountain Motel in Pincher Creek, Alberta this morning and drove westward through Crowsnest Pass and beyond.

We ended up here, at the Bavarian Orchard Motel in Creston, British Columbia and I find it hard to believe that serendipidity could have led us to a more beautiful setting.

Creston is a small town set on a high valley, almost a plateau, surrounded on three sides by high mountains with a gap towards the south looking onto the Washington state. Our motel is well named except for the curious 'Bavarian' reference, for the vast garden in the back is indeed an orchard with cherries and apples ripening and some vines for grapes.We will stay here for a while. 🙂
