The weather this past weekend was amazing here in Kelowna. For days like this, there are so many great hiking trails around. Many locals enjoy a nice and easy hike up Knox Mountain. “Knox” is located at the North End of town. The trails range from easy to medium difficulty providing an amazing view over the city and Okanagan Lake. I usually take the Apex Trail which is a bit more challenging than hiking up the road but it also provides you with breathtaking views all the way up to the top. If you are planing on visiting or living in Kelowna, Knox Mountain is really something you shouldn’t miss.
Here are a few captures from last weekend:
Driving in Canada is like taking the train in Europe – Everyone does it. It’s cheap and scenic views are always guaranteed. This past weekend we felt like a “weekend getaway” and decided to go to Nelson, BC. We drove through the beautiful Western Kootenays and arrived in Nelson on Saturday afternoon.
Nelson is a little Mountain town in the Southern Kootenays about a 4 hour drive from Kelowna. The city is so friendly, bohemian, artistic, and relaxing. There are many unique stores, coffee shops and restaurants.
One of the highlights of our stay was the hike up to Pulpit Rock at the opposite side of the lake overlooking the city. Just as we reached the top of the mountain, it started snowing.
I guess winter is here.
