kettle valley pics"> Like most of the ride on the Kettle Valley Railroad one cannot capture the uniqueness of Myra Canyon in photos. Named after the daughter of Andrew McCulloch it is probably the most mythic section of the entire route drawing a vast array of tourists seeking both beauty and railroad history. It is only another 12-14 miles from Myra to Shute Lake Resort which has plenty of camping space.The food is a bit pricey so its better to bring your own.The next day is an easy ride to Summerland via Penticton which is only 25 miles from Shute lake. Take time out for a long lunch. There is a SUBWAY and other restaurants if you turn left before crossing Main street.When leaving Penticton at the junction of route 97 one can procede along Lake Okanagon to the Summerland cutoff or if you want to see Trout Creek bridge turn left at the junction and walk your bike up the long hill that finally crosses the railbed at a small bridge.Head north to Summerland.
