Fall Colours Tour

Back when we lived in Washington, we had this group of young married couples we did some stuff with. One of the guys liked to plan what he called the "fall colors tour", a scenic drive through some of Washington's back roads to enjoy the fall leaves with lots of stops in small towns for lunch and coffees and swapping passengers. Well 8-9 hours later....

Yesterday we embarked on our own "Okanagan fall colors tour", knowing the passengers weren't up to 8 hours (we could visit Gramma in that time), we headed out. The colors certainly aren't as spectacular as the areas around the Cascade Mountains... but the water vistas were incredible!

Kalamalka Lake with it's amazing turqoise hue, not really captured here out the car window

Here is where we nearly headed home for dry clothes as I was backing up, backing up trying to get a photo and literally stopped at the edge of the dock. If my steps had been off a bit I would have been IN!! With my camera :) Definitely a notable photo!

Gotta have some road kill

Hello honey
Move over Charles Ingalls...

By the Shuswap River- yes actually I am attacking him... sometimes I can't help myself...

And we thought boys were the silly ones!

Looks like a fun day.

That's so beautiful. We don't have any fall colors yet and often don't get a lot anyway. I miss that.
