Lots of different angles to shoot pictures with your camera. Parking is limited, however. Driving up from Osoyoos, I had to pull a U Turn in thebmiddle of the highway to be able to park in front.

Stopped here on a recent trip in the area. Not really much to do in Osoyoos so we decided to see what this is all about. Very cool to see something like this but not much to see. Basically you stop, get out, take a picture and leave. It's about ten minutes of your time but worth seeing if your... More

This is a very unique spot and for us it was worth the 15 minute detour . We stopped here a couple of years ago when we weren't sure exactly where it was . This time we were ready ! It's on Hwy 3 about 5 minutes west of Osoyoos . Just after you have climbed the long hill out... More

We have been travelling on this road quite a few times, but this is the first time we actually noticed it. While there is a tiny pull-out and a sign right at the site, there should be an advanced sign post for this spectacular site. If you drive from Vancouver/Keremeos, then it is on the right, if you come from... More

Blink and you'll miss it! On the south side of Hwy 3 just west of Osoyoos is Spotted Lake. It has a very narrow pullout and you'll be travelling about 80km or more per hour as you come upon it, and often you're admiring it as you fly by, wondering why in the heck does this wee pond (city folk...

Really a cool place to see. Watch for it or you will miss it and drive right by, heading away from Osoyoos toward Vancouver it is on the left.

You will miss this mineral filled lake spectacle if you go flying down the hill into Osoyoos. To help you out, punch these into your GPS: Latitude: North 49 ͦ 4’ 40.86” Longitude: West 119 ͦ 34’ 3.01” In the summer, most of the water evaporates, leaving behind colorful mineral deposits. It leaves natural 'walkways' around the spots. The locals... More

Poorly signposted and no place to park off road. We just had to park at the side of the road and look over the fence.
