A little more beauty to share tonight. After finishing my classes in Summerland, we had one more day to explore, and it turned out to be a day of awesome weather. Here's a view over the lake in Osoyoos, probably the southern-most city in British Columbia. It is dry there, as this area is part of the Sonoran Desert, stretching up from Mexico.
Ever since I saw a TripAdvisor report talking about Spotted Lake, I wanted to go there, and we did. It is a bit east of Osoyoos, along Highway 3. Access to the lake is restricted since it is a sacred site to the Okanagan Syilx people, who believe the waters of the lake have healing power. It is also an amazing natural wonder.
There is beautiful scenery all along Highway 3 as you keep heading east.
We headed back toward the lake, past more vineyards
If asked to describe the Okanagan Valley, I would say it is the Tuscany of Canada, minus the ancient buildings.
