Before leaving the area, we drove up the hill to the east. This view is looking north up the Okanagan Valley.We then drove west in search of fresh-picked cherries. We were directed to a fruit stand in the little town of Keremeos, where we bought cherries and strawberries. While we were there, we shopped at a hemp store. The owner carves mastodon ivory and had a mastodon tusk and also a mammoth tusk for sale.
The tusks were excavated by miners who found them in the perma-frost near Dawson City, Yukon.
