Keremeos is a small town about 350km west of Vancouver. Full of orchards and fruit stands, for some reason when I visited it earlier this last year on my way back from Kelowna and North Cascades National Park, most of what I photographed was a few plants and the “Sportsman’s Slide” talus slope just outside of town.
I am not sure what municipal jurisdiction this area fall under, but Green Mountain Road runs between Penticton and Keremeos, BC. Drove through here on my way back home from a visit to Kelowna, BC. This was a nice drive through the interior mountains near the Apex Alpine ski resort.
I did like this old log cabin though. Hope to go back up there in spring when more flowers are blooming. Mostly just saw the Arrowleaf Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sagittata) picture above.

Upon seeing this sign it became painfully obvious to me that on future trips such as this, I should bring binoculars. I think I saw a white dot on the mountain, but who knows what it actually was.
