Looking out to Okanagan Lake and the surrounding landscape from the Penticton shoreline

We actually traveled to Penticton from Vancouver to go rock climbing at the Skaha Bluffs. Unfortunately, we hit the rainiest week of the year. The Okanagan area is high mountain desert and typically gets low rainfall. We did manage a few days of climbing and fortunately, it is also wine country.

  1. I loved the place, you know here we are on the other side of the world and is completely backwards, the shortest day of the year …
    Adiรณs Karen…

  2. Ah, you go to such interesting places Karen! And I’m glad you take your camera with you, for sure! But remember, don’t drink wine and rock climb at the same time – wine glasses are just too fragile!

  3. Oh, my! Lovely! Such a wine-velvet texture to the whole series, a delicate balance of color and atmosphere to allow one to take it in, and be taken in by it. Great work Karen.

  4. Karen,
    I just don’t know what to say anymore… But I was #70 to like your post. I think I deserve a price! Coffee?

    1. Hi Carla,
      I bring all my usual equipment, but I have a water proof camera bag to put everything in. And I take an umbrella and/or waterproof clothing to shield things from the rain.
