after an arduous, stressful day driving through the mountains where the previous day's driving (Vancouver-Osoyoos) had proved in no uncertain terms that prairie driving was definitely their forte and mountain driving definitely not (apologies to anyone driving behind us), and that this day's driving, Osoyoos-Trail, confirmed their theory once again (apologies all around). Directions to the hotel given by the relatives these 2 were to visit in Trail were as such: "you'll see it as you drive into town", which they did as they passed it ..... they'd made the error of using their prairie perspective of "drive into town" which is done on a very flat road, whereas this drive was down a steep decline while with a lot of curves, again, proving mountain driving not their forte. In any case, upon arrival at this hotel they (besides wanting to kiss the ground) were greeted by very friendly staff, and then delighted with their room. It was sooooo clean, even the tv remote control was "new" as it came in its own wrapper; and such lovely details like a full length mirror on the bathroom door, fluffy towels, a fabric shower curtain, even a heat lamp in the bathroom, nice carpet, and then the bed, so comfortable for these 2 weary birds. Provided just the right amount of rest, recuperation and recovery these 2 needed to face yet another day of up down over around and through another bunch of mountains as they made their way home (also proving that maybe next time they're in Trail, being of the bird family, they should fly....) less
