Here is another pic from Osoyoos last year




I love going there every year. Osoyoos, and the south Okanagan in general does not feel like Canada. For 6 months of the year you really do feel like you are in California or Mexico. It is so hot and so dry, and the nights stay nice and warm as well.

I remember once staying in Osoyoos for 3 weeks in June / July and the coldest day we had was a high of 26, and after a couple weeks of 30+ weather I was amazed how cool 26 felt

Even the winter is short (only lasting about 2 months) and even then the average high temps still remain above freezing.

For those in Eastern Canada if you ever come to BC, you must come to the South Okanagan in the summer.

Great pics everyone. What a gorgeous country we live in.

I echo the sentiments about the Okanagan, my favourite place in the country. I plan on going camping in the Shuswap this summer, looking forward to those 30+ temperatures.

we need photos of that shitpicker village called Bridesville, which is up Anarchist Mountain and to the East of Osoyoos.

Took me forever to dig up this old thread. I am actually amazed how many good discussions / threads become forgotten.

Anyways, here are some pics from the White lake area, west of Penticton. What is so cool about this area is the Radio telescope space research centre located there.

Here are some of my pics of the area taken last week (nice and hot, around 33 when i was there)















All pics are my own

cheers

Some shots I took a couple days ago southwest of Calgary (between about 20 and 40 minutes outside of town).

Good idea to bring back this thread.

I went to the Bas St.Laurent a couple of weeks ago. I was struck by the beauty of this region, which is not very well known. The tourists usually drive through the region on their way to the Gaspésie. Rimouski, Kamouraska (picture below) and the little towns scattered along the St.Lawrence river (sea?) have a lot of charm.

I couldn't care less about our cityscapes. I spent one year and half in Europe and it took me this to realize the chance we have in this country to have this diversity of landscapes and real wilderness, endless forests, million of lakes... It's unique in the world. Now I consider myself lucky to be born in this country.

I appreciate both cityscapes and landscapes. We're blessed in that the one we have no control over (landscapes) is unparalleled. Our cities? We can always keep building, but some of them are quite fabulous already.
