Kelowna, British Columbia

I've just spent a few days in Kelowna, B.C. Kelowna is a pretty city that sits in the Okanogan Valley and wine country. The city is long and narrow, bordering Okanogan Lake.
It has a population of 107,000, which seems to swell during the summer and for rush hour traffic.

Full of lush trees, the city was very warm the first week of September, when I was there. Most days were close to 30 degrees celcius. Luckily the city also cooled down each evening. After a summer of nearby forest fires, the air was surprisingly clear and fresh. A few evening rains certainly helped!

Orchard Park Mall and the downtown area provided lots of great stores for browsing. The neighbourhoods were also nice for walking, making it an easy place to visit.
