Pouring rain in Canmore so we headed for the Okanagan. There was rain forecast there too, but we figured it probably wouldn't be as bad, and at least it would be warmer. It wasn't raining when we arrived in Kelowna so we set up camp at Willow Creek campground (right in town). We went up to the Summerhill winery bistro for supper and by the time we got there it was socked in and pouring rain. Not much to see of the normally wonderful view across the lake but that didn't stop us from having a great meal.

The ducks were enjoying the puddles in the campground:


This morning it was still very cloudy, but not actually raining so we headed up to climb. There was a good chance of rain forecast for the afternoon, but it ended up clearing and turning sunny, and we had a good day at the local crags.

Waiting for Shelley to rappel down from a climb I took some photos of the flowering bush beside me:


There was a marmot in the rocks near where we were climbing. It ran away when it saw me, but its curiosity got the best of it and it poked its head up to check me out.
