British Columbia to Washington
From BC Highway 3. The Crow's Nest Highway

NIGHTHAWK is a very small and lightly used border crossing in the beautiful desert Similkameen Valley located one mountain range  west of the Okanagan Valley  and Osoyoos BC , 2km south off BC Higway 3 .

In Washington it is fed by paved state   and county roads from TONASKET and OROVILLE which are both on US 97

Nighthawk is open only during daylight from 9 am until 5 pm   and   gates are closed beyond these hours .

The photo shows all there is  to see , coming  from Canada.

Canada Customs has their small office   on left side of road and a short distance south  the road makes a 90 degree turn east into the USA Customs facility ( white steel roof) which also has the  mentioned gate and fences .

Have your documents ready and you should be  through this border in a matter of minutes.  Two vehicles may be considered a long lineup .

It is so simple nobody can fail to find it and get through.
