Shuswap Lake

Having a time constraint, we couldn't be quite as spontaneous as we would have liked.  But we did take some time to observe Shuswap Lake from a roadside pullout near Salmon Arm, BC.

I'm not sure where Scoot focussed his binoculars, but the panoramic view was worthwhile.

I pulled out my Field Guide to Wildflowers, Western Region, to identify this sweet-smelling shrub:

It's a mock orange, as you Idaho natives will recognize.  I didn't bother to look up the giant dandelion, and I refrained from bringing its seeds home.  That's illegal, you know.

The boys enjoyed some bouldering,

and I soaked up the sunny scenery.
