   I have passed this small lake (or pond) along Glenmore Road in Kelowna, British Columbia for a few years – never really knowing the story of the poles stuck in the ground there. Google has turned up a lot of information about what these actually are, but I don’t know which story is true. Depending on who you believe these are either:

  1. An emergency refueling station for water bombers (this doesn’t seem too plausible)
  2. The remains of an old irrigation flume
  3. Remains of an old bridge or pier

Personally I think it looks like an old fence or someone just stuck a bunch of sticks in the ground in order to start this kind of speculation!

I did enjoy the Kildeer running around in the grasses near the road though. Not a good photo opportunity, but cool to see.
