A trip to Osoyoos in pictures

It must have been nearly a month ago, and it took me a long time to get the pictures posted from our trip to Osoyoos for a quick weekend getaway, so here’s a delayed recap in photos. Rebecca has some good posts about the trips and various portions of it here, here, here, and here.

Downtown Osoyoos

Welcome to the wild, wild Washington State

Those trees are really that huge

Seriously, go slow

Beef and pork on the grill

Lots of rest and relaxation, but we don’t own a car. It’s nice to take long drives through the countryside, see the land, and listen to music. That’s what makes us happy.

Look what my new Canon camera can do

Ok, this isn’t anything to be overly proud of or that important to showcase, but this is a great example of what my Canon S5 IS can do in movie mode. This is a short video I made within hours of getting this on Christmas morning while driving across the Pattullo Bridge.

The quality of YouTube actually decreases the quality of these videos, not to mention the fact that it records in stereo for the audio. Very cool. I hope to take more advantage of this in the future. I just need to find a good set of rechargeable AA batteries.
