One Night in Canada

A week and a half ago, after driving the length of US 97 in Washington, Chunlin and I spent the night in Osoyoos, British Columbia.

Here's the view from our hotel room -- top floor of the Holiday Inn.

The sun sets pretty darn early this time of year, but we did manage to take a walk before it got too dark.

28 - Osoyoos Lake Gazeebo

Osoyoos Lake is one-third in Washington and two-thirds in Canada, but it has a couple peninsulas that nearly extend all the way across the lake. Thus it appears smaller than it is, when you're on the shore. Our hotel was on one of the peninsulas, as is the distant row of trees in the photo above.

I have to use my flash and it's what time?

34 - Osoyoos Fountain

Maybe this will give you a clearer sense of where Osoyoos is in Canada.

Or you could use a map. . .

There's more photos from that four-day trip on flickr, and I still have a few more to go through.
