Hiking in Kelowna

While I was in Kelowna this summer, I walked in Mission Creek with a walking group that my daughter Aislinn found for me.
Mission Creek has 12 kms of hiking trails, and I explored a few of them alone and with the group.
Here is the link to the park.

This is what the trails look like.

Twice I decided to walk from home ( in Kelowna) to Okanagan Lake, along the trail which follows Mission Creek until it empties into the lake. The first time, the temperatures were in the mid thirties, but the second time, with my friend June, it was much more moderate. June and I met Aislinn and the 4 children at Marmalade Cat cafe, where some of us indulged in their famous chelsea buns.

Here is the trail. We started at the spot marked G and walked to Okanagan Lake,

Another hike I walked was along the Kettle Valley trestle bridges in Myra Canyon.

It was the day after Aislinn had given birth to Rasaraj, so Michael and I took the other three children to hike the trail and the trestles.

Some of the bridges are quite high, and there is the possibility of vertigo!

There are many other great opportunities for hiking in the mountains, and I hope to explore more when I return for another visit.
