Urgent help on route to Kelowna

Hi ,

I am on my way from Vancouver to Kelowna right now , driving down in my rented Jeep -me and my wife , 50 years of age.

Currently 60kms from Hope .

Was planning to take Highway 3 as more scenic even though longer .

But with the fires, was wondering if we would miss out on all the beauty because of the haze . Wwould the driving extra be worth it ?

Drive BC says - low visibility between Manning and Princeton.

Let me know have your expert advise ASAP.

I would defer to drivebc as being the experts in this situation - and you can check the traffic cameras to see what conditions are like in real time. The one at Keremeos looks very smoky right now, and Sunday Summit, a bit harder to tell, but some definite haze for sure.
