Leaving vancouver from highway
About 30 minutes outside of Vancouver
About an hour or so outside of Vancouver
More low mountains enroute
Mountains getting bigger
City of hope -- this is near where I started on the more scenic road. It suffered a serious slide, words here, picture on next.
Hope landslide (part of it)
View from near Hope, notice white at the top of the ridges.
Mountain streams were everywhere.
Another random mountain stream
A campground near a highway with a stream, and people kiyaking
Lower view of the stream from the campground. I tried the water, it is ice cold, FAR colder than what we found in the Smokeys.
Another view of the stream, catching a tree that was blooming. They were everywhere, and increadibly sweet smelling.
A tree living barely on the edge of the stream
The cell phone didn't do this justice, but it is a small town in a mountain dead end canyon. Storm clounds were above.
More mountains, getting closer to the desert
Mour mountains and a nice shot of the valleys that were everwhere on the trip, large flat areas in between large mountains. This is closer to the desert.
Getting into the desert area you can see the cultivated (and irrigated) fields, but the normal vegitation is scrub brush type plants.
Just ouside of Osoyoos, some very strange "lake" that was solid.
Here's the Spotted lake. Dried mineral deposits left when the lake evaporated?
View entering Osoyoos. That's the town on the far right.
