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.
