Part way up we stopped at the look out - something we'd have never dared do with the old truck as we needed the momentum....
I attempted a series of panorama shots. This one is looking southwards towards the B.C./U.S.A. border. That is Osoyoos Lake down there.
Here is a look at the river itself. This area was just behind our site...there is a path that runs all along the side of the river. The Kettle River, which is quite wide and 'tame' is a favorite for floating down on tubes or other inflatables. Something we have yet to try.
Bird List: Ruffed Grouse (could hear several 'drumming'); Robins; Red Breasted Nuthatch - lots; Mountain Chickadees (could hear them calling); Violet Green Swallows - 8; Yellow-rump Warblers - at least 14; Ruby crowned Kinglets - 3; Black Cap Chickadee - 5; Canada Geese - 2 - that made enough noise for a dozen as they constantly flew up and down the river; Northern Flicker (Red Shaft) - 1; Common Merganser - 1 pair on the river; Sharp Shin Hawk -1; Raven - 2; Nashville Warbler - 2; Song Sparrow - 2; Dark Eyed Junco (Oregon) - 4; Wood Duck - a pair on the river which surprised me as it didn't seem the sort of place I'd expect Wood Ducks to be; Red Naped Sapsucker - 1; Pileated Woodpecker - 1; Hooded Merganser - 2.
