I continued my journey passing some more beautiful lakes; I am not getting bored at all.
We reached the E. C. Manning Provincial Park, and stopped at the Lighning Lake, the Osoyoos Lake and the Spotted Lake.
Atop Blackwall Peak (some beautiful but highly toxic Pulsatillas. Excess use of this plant can lead to diarrhea, vomiting and convulsions, hypotension and coma. It has been used as a medicine by Native Americans for centuries. Blackfoot Indians used it to induce abortions and childbirth. I was brave enough to actually touch it as I am a strong and resilient rhino!
We passed through the Okanagan Desert which is the common name for a semi-arid area located in the South Okanagan region, primarily around Osoyoos Lake.
We stopped at the Okanagan Lake and also the Rigamarole Winery. When the Okanagan's Artisan Wine Company launched its Rigamarole stable of wines last year, it was little more than a fun project between the winemakers and the marketers. The brand is a rising success. I must also admit that the red wine label with my ancestor on is quite an amusing one…”Save that mental energy for working out the dance routine of the black rhino”.
I am now travelling to Victoria City, so keep coming back for some more adventures.
With Love Stompie!
