A Few More Okanagan Views

M and I have been doing lots of walking around our new home in British Columbia’s truly spectacular Okanagan Valley. Lots of wine is produced here and the landscape reflects that. There are moderate, wet winters with very hot summers, great for grapes and all the other types of fruit that are grown here. There’s so much more, however. Here’s a sample:

This is the view from Skaha Bluffs Provincial Park. It's high above Skaha Lake and is great for rock climbing, but also for us walkers.

There are some furiously fast snow melt creeks in the hills around the village of Naramata. We stopped to admire this particularly stunning example.

We are continually oohing, ahhing and wowing as we explore this amazing place.

We feel truly grateful to be here. 🙂
