Mount Baldy

It is cloudy again today but yesterday was one of those "blue-sky-sunny-all-day" type of days, so off we went exploring. This time we drove climbing up the twisting road from Oliver to the ski mountain called Mount Baldy. It is only open at the week-ends just now so we didn't see any skiing. The summit is 8600 Ft or 2600 Metres. It makes a change when you leave the lowlands to meet gradually deeper and deeper snow in the highlands, with ever-improving views all the while. We descended by a different road to Osoyoos for lunch, then home the regular route back through Oliver for afternoon Christmas cake and tea in Penticton.

Schöne Bilder! Ihr hattet traumhaftes Wetter.
Ich geniesse es, wenn ich bei Sonnenschein auf einen Berg fahren kann.
Wie hoch sind eure Berge?
Liebe Grüsse
Angela

The lake reflections are great, I hope you are enjoying the snow.

I have been visiting blog a lot the last weeks but it is very difficult to make comments from the Middle East. For some reason the internet gets blocked when I try.

Greetings,
Filip

May nature send you many more "blue-sky-sunny-all-day" days : your photographs add so much value to them.
