Nk'Mip Campground, Osoyoos, BC, Day 2 & the Observatory B&B

Friday, June 6, 2014, Nk'Mip Campground, Osoyoos, BC, Day 2 - 0 miles, 9472.3 For the Trip

While I'll post an update later, I have to post about one of the highlights of my trip - a visit to the Observatory Bed & Breakfast. One of the members of the Escape Forum knew I was interested, and invited me and a few others for a visit with the owners, Jack & Alice Newton. An amazing place with great views of the lake, valley &, of course, skies. It was a bit cloudy, but we got a chance for some great views of Jupiter, the moon, rings of Saturn, binary stars, etc. Jack gave a wonderful talk about the birth of the universe, and provided a wealth of information. We all felt it was the highlight of our various trips. If you are looking for a place to stay in Osoyoos and don't have a RV (or, even if you do) a night or two at the Observatory B&B can't be beat!  More photos at today's LakeshoreImages page.

Sorry about the quality of some of the photos, but they were taken at very high ISOs under very low light levels.
