  Nicola valley
by balhannah

Do a road trip, a round tour.

Start off at the Othello tunnels, then follow the highway to MERRITT, the country music capital of Canada.
At Merritt, we stopped for lunch, then went for a walk around the town, looking at the bronze replicas of stars AND musicians handprints and signatures.
At Lytton, the Fraser and Thompson rivers converge. The Nicola valley is green and lush, gold country is dry and interesting.
You pass by the "Hells Gate" which is swirling rapids, you can go by cable car across them for a fee.

This was a really good, day's tour that we did, lots of different landscapes and sights to see on the way.
