OKANAGAN VALLEY, BC - On Thursday morning, the #BearTracks crew wound through the roads of The Okanagan, not far from the city of Kelowna in British Columbia.
It marked the second leg of our trip, after visiting with Milan Lucic where he grew up in Vancouver to kick off the journey.
As we navigated through mountains and hills, with lakes in full view, our jaws just about dropped. The scenery was breathtaking. It would serve as the backdrop for our first time meeting the newest Bruin, Jarome Iginla, who was signed as a free agent just under a month ago, on July 5. And just about a month from now, he’ll be gearing up to move his family East to Boston.
From when he first arrived at the park to meet us, through the duration of his two-hour outdoor workout, Jarome was all smiles, and unequivocally inviting.
"I’m very fortunate to be able to come out here in The Okanagan," he said, of the amazing views that surround his summer home (Jarome is originally from Edmonton, about eight hours to the Northeast, but has spent offseasons near Kelowna). "It makes it a lot easier and a lot more of enjoyable to be in an atmosphere like this."
