As we were slowly wending our way homeward, we came to Okanogan County – just due south of the Okanagan Valley in Canada. Our travel day was short, so we had time to explore the area after getting settled in the campground.
Okan0gan, Omak, Riverside – all communities with their own flavor, and so close together, we almost didn’t realize we’d left one community before we were in the next.
One of our favorite pastimes when we travel is finding old buildings, and having an opportunity to appreciate the architecture, and the skill and labor that went into erecting buildings that have survived decades if not more than a century.
At Okanogan, we took a few photo-ops.
It’s amazing to see the differences in styles as buildings were built throughout the ages – and so wonderful to see the preservation of history!
Back to Canada, and we settled at a favorite campground at Gallagher Lake, just north of Oliver. We have a few now-traditional spots to visit in this area, which include a couple of quilt shops.
