Day 12, Indian Head hike

I got up early and drove to Kelowna to meet Murray and Glenn for a hike, we then drove to near Oliver to this place; Indian Head.

The hike was all up hill and we eventually left the trail and started going up some steep slopes.

The poor guy looks better from a distance! And there was a cougar den right behind his neck; a rather disturbing little piece of information after seeing bear droppings the whole way up!
But the view from the top was spectacular. That is White Lake with the road just behind it to the left.
The whole panorama, click it to see it bigger. To the right is some sort of observatory where the Canadians are listening for noises from space (The Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory)... seems a good use of funds to me. We drove all around the premises and no one seemed particularly concerned.
A well-deserved glass of wine with the owner of Quinta Ferriera Winery, then a few other winery stops and back home for dinner at 7!
