Hubby had to work, so Coal (dog) & I spent Thursday night at the cabin near Princeton before heading up to my folks place at Twin Lakes, near Penticton, for the rest of the weekend. Also took a trip into Kelowna on Saturday, but no pics of that.

This is "Charlotte", who was waiting for me at the cabin. Creepy looking alien eyes on the abdomen. http://www3.telus.net/trishl/Trish/Sept%20Long%2006/IMGP4350.jpg

Friday met up with my folks for a daytrip up one of the local mountains. My Dad has been hunting it for 50+ years. [36]

View on the way up.

There's been considerable logging up the mountain and it's changing the face of it. This is one of the burn piles.

To put it in perspective, this is my S'ploder parked in front of it.

The view to the meadow from what has been our camp in past years. Logging mess!

Happy wet dogs who managed to find the only body of water in the area. Coal in front & Tye (Dad's dog) behind.

Sticks are yummy!

Dad showed me where his buddy has built a super de-luxe potty and decided to ham it up for the photo. [15]

View spot on the way down. A little bit of smoke, but not bad.

On to Mom & Dad's place and swimming with the dogs.

Heading up "kiss the rock" hill, just before East Gate. Bumper to bumper long weekend traffic [27]

Thanks. [cheers]

I can't imagine the air quality has improved much, unless the winds shifted. Hope you have a safe trip.
