I just woke up in my hotel room here in Kamloops, the first stop on my trip to Alberta and the Canadian Rockies. I completed the three-hour run up the Coquihalla last night, and the Focus performed beautifully. Zero drama from the transmission, steering rack, or MyFord Touch (aside from my own difficulty in pronouncing "Kamloops" to its satisfaction). I'll be spending the next eight days in Yoho, Banff, and Jasper national parks, taking tons of photos. I'm sure the Focus will pose for a few along the way.
