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. 🙂
