The Big View

I love this trail above Penticton that looks down on Lake Okanagan, and to the south, Skaha Lake.

I’ve hiked this trail countless times and have probably stopped to admire this view at every opportunity. I have taken multiple photos during these stops and at every time of year.

Here it is in its full summer glory; grape vines in the foreground, lakes and hills in the background.

Just beginning to wake up from a winter sleep. Although this was a lovely warm day, you can see that there’s still a little snow in the opposite hills at the higher elevations.

Shhh. Everyone is sleeping.

No matter the season, this view is wonderful. Comforting, constantly changing in its seasonal cycle and always beautiful, it never fails to centre me, to provide me with serenity.

Happy Monday. 🙂

  1. It’s always fun to return to a place in a different season to see how much the landscape has changed. This looks like a wonderful spot and I can see why you’ve hiked this trail a lot.

    1. It’s one of those breathtaking views that should never be taken for granted. So beautiful, and the trail has views like this all the way along its length (it goes to Kelowna – about 80 km). It’s part of a trail system, too, so you can go much farther than that.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
