Since 2006, Gene & I have been driving to/from Big White two to three times a year. It usually takes us three days to cover the 1600 miles. Gene does most of the driving while I snap photos, read or work on the computer. He drives much better when I am occupied. We have different views of the scenery based on time or year, whether we are coming or going, and time of day. We try to time it so we can eat at Deschutes Brewery in Bend, OR. Our route is usually the 5 to the 97 (with a deviation to avoid Wenatchee) to Kelowna to the 33.
