What beautiful scenery! Thanks for sharing your pictures, I would like to make it up there in the spring for a test run before going in the fall. How are the roads to the microwave tower? Are they still logging up there or?
Great pic's, I've been up to Oyama lk quite a few times but not to that tower.
looks like a good view of Coldstream and Vernon, I'll hafta find out how to get up there (nudg,nudge,wink,wink) [cheers]

Its really quite simple to get to the tower.
We actually seen it from Towgood Lake and made it our mission to get up there.
Anyway....to get there.
Drive up Oyama Lake road like your going to the Oyama Lake Resort/Lodge.
At the sign for the lodge, take the road that branches off to the left.
Follow Oyama FSR until you just pass Daimer Lake(which is on your right).
A couple of blocks down the Oyama FSR, past Daimer, you take your next left(which is the road up to the tower)
The road up to the tower is good, but is a tiny bit rough and steep in one place, a 4x4 is definately needed.
The tower is only 1.5 kms or so, off of Oyama FSR, and the gate was open.
The google map shows an alternative way up, if the gate is locked.
The view is incredible!
