Day 3 Nakusp to Revelstoke
Lot's of ups and downs today with total elevation gain of 4225 feet. First water stop was @ 21 km after our first climb of the day. Lots of mountain scenery today and quiet roads. Another screaming descent to the Galena Bay ferry to cross Arrow Lake. Lunch was after the ferry ride at Shelter Bay. Had some great views of the Columbia River and crossed over a wooden bridge into Revelstoke. Had a spectacular dinner of roast beef with wild mushroom tortolini salads and rolls. Dessert was a frozen bumble berry cheesecake. We camped right on the edge of the Columbia River. I finished the day with a soak in the hot tub at the rec centre. Cold water was at a premium after another hot day.
