Final Images

A few last photos from our trip. We didn't get many colorful sunsets in the Okanagan, but our last evening was quite nice.

The Kettle Valley Rail Trail goes right through the campground (Wrights) where we were staying and our last morning there we took a walk along it. There were quite a few Canada geese with their goslings.

And of course, I can't resist the flowers and bees. (And the ants which I didn't notice until I looked at the photographs later.) Anyone know what these flowers are?

On our drive home we stopped in Field because we were planning to do a climb beside Takakkaw Falls. As we got our gear ready in the evening the women in the next campsite asked what we were planning to do and when we told her she said "oh, is the road open?". It turned out it wasn't, so much for that plan! On the positive side, we hadn't expected much in the way of places to eat in Field, so we were pleasantly surprised to find the Truffle Pig Bistro - recommended.

When we came out of the restaurant there was a black bear on the hill behind. It appeared to be eating, but I'm not sure what since it was just a grassy area. Maybe just salad :-)

And there was nice evening light on the mountains.

We decided to climb at the back of Lake Louise the next day. We hadn't been here for a few years and we enjoyed the climbs, but it was a sunny Sunday and the crowds of tourists and climbers were a bit much for me! The next day we climbed at Kid Goat where it was much quieter.
