Easter Sunday
This is as good a day as any other to refire up the blog. I haven't missed hiking/biking/walking any day since I've left you last, but getting around to getting all the pieces together to get it online - well, that's a different story.

Today's hike was up McDougall Rim, one of the premier hikes very close to Kelowna. That's the bridge across the lake behind me. Access to it is from Bartley Road, just passed Bylands.  Stunning views of the valley, Big White and Silver Star can be gotten when the weather was as perfect as it was yesterday. 

That's the Rose Valley Reservoir below, another great hike around if you have the time.

Spring wouldn't be if we didn't do our annual Enderby Cliff hike. The trail has been changed considerably over the many years since we've been coming here. It is an official Provincial Park with a parking lot, and legitimate trails. There is no other more stunning view than from here. You can see Salmon Arm from the top. It took us a little under 2 hours to get to the highest view point, longer than before as the trail doesn't go straight up as it used to.

Looking back at where we've been.

At the Log Barn on the highway back home, we are gob smacked by all the geegaws assembled in one place. Must admit, it made us stop.
