North end of Okanagan Valley, about half way between Vancouver and Calgary. 13 km north of Armstrong. About 8 km west of Enderby. Good view of valley. Very quiet.
Will add photos and more information later .
Suggested Local Attractions
Hiking up Enderby cliffs (5 to 6 hour round trip; not up the face). Shorter hike (1.5 to 2 hour round trip) up Rose Swanson Mountain; over looking Armstrong and Okanagan Lake. Swimming at Shuswap, Okanagan and Kalamalka Lakes (0.5 hours distance).
Mountain-top views by driving up ski hills within 1 to 2 hours distance (Vernon, Kelowna, Kamloops).
Interior Provincial Exhibition in Armstrong, 5 days in late August and early September each year. The largest agricultural fair in the province and has been in operation 110+ years. www.armstrongipe.com
8 day used book sale in mid-April each year at Armstrong Spallumcheen Museum and Art Gallery. www.armstrongspallmuseumart.com
Wine tasting further south in the Okanagan Valley, 1/2 to 2 hours distance.
About 2.5 km of gravel road to driveway. Driveway is moderately steep and has 2 switchbacks. Don't really know maximum length of vehicle that can get around switchbacks, but we had tandem axle concrete trucks here during house renovation. Not a good driveway for RVs when it snows.
Available anytime. Have 1 or 2 possible additional spaces for short RVs (15 to 20 feet).
In A Few Words...
A Little More Detail
Ron is a retired geotechnical engineer with an ongoing interest in earthfill dams, landslides and terrain stability. Forced to learn something about baking as my favorite muffin bakery burned down a few years ago. Linda is the household computer and gadget person, but also interested in gardening and genealogy. Our mountain bikes have travelled extensively in the back of the truck without touching the ground. Occasionally drag the canoe out to small lakes or calm rivers.
We both volunteer at the Armstrong Spallumcheen Museum and Art Gallery, a non-profit organization.
Favorite Boondocking Locations
Completed a 11,000 km, 5 week trip to Dallas / Ft. Worth Texas via Canyon Parks in May 2012. Too fast. In 2010, drove to Inuvik, including the 700 km (each way) Dempster Highway (?) towing a covered utility trailer and tenting. That's why we got a travel trailer. Much drier and faster to set up. Planning trips to Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), Ontario and east.
None other than the local wildlife.
