It was a full day between our 4 hour drive here from Kelowna travelling on both the Coquihalla and Connector Highway, the highest point of which is at 5760 feet. For a while we were literally driving through the clouds. The conference started at 2 pm and went until 9 pm tonight but it was a good day of connecting and learning.
This year the theme is cultural diversity and today we were fortunate to have several First Nation speakers come and share their stories with us. Their passion, their pain, their spirit and their strength brought everyone to tears.
Tomorrow is another full day in conference followed by a few hours of travel to get a head start on our 18 hour drive back home.
