Left - Approaching the Hwy 33 Junction on the westbound Crowsnest Highway (Hwy 3) in Rock Creek. From here, motorists can either continue straight ahead via Hwy 3 towards Osoyoos and Vancouver, or turn right and follow Hwy 33 towards Kelowna and Vernon. Regardless of the route chosen, fill up in Rock Creek - it is a long way before another gas station is seen. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 33 towards Kelowna from the Hwy 3 Junction in Rock Creek. The Kelowna-Rock Creek Highway (Hwy 33) is a relative newcomer in the British Columbia highway system. When the highway was first opened to traffic in 1970, it reduced the highway distance between Kelowna and Rock Creek by 50 km. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Approaching the Crowsnest Highway (Hwy 3) on southbound Hwy 33 in Rock Creek. Due to the adjacent grade on Hwy 3, the intersection is extremely skewed and inconspicuous - the hydro pole line in the background follows Hwy 3. Accordingly, motorists using this junction should use extra caution. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
