Peach Tree

These are in my SIL's parents' neighbour's back yard. My SIL's mother said that in all the years they've lived at this house, the neighbour has never once let her have a single peach. He also has an electric fence around the yard to keep out the bears. I'm not a huge fan of peaches, but I love the looks of them.

Shedd Aquarium, August 2004

I always love a good aquarium. The Shedd is in Chicago, and I visited it in the summer of 2004.

Dove Hill Hike

Yesterday I hiked up Dove Hill in Castlegar with my father. Fuller story here.

The trail head.

View from the top, looking north up the Columbia River Valley.

This is the view from the south lookout, where you can see the airport and the golf course.
It's berry time! This is Oregon Grape, which I'm not sure is edible, but we saw lots of huckleberries and even some wild raspberries.

Here you can see the meeting of the Kootenay and Columbia rivers. On the left, near the middle, you can just make out Zuckerberg Island.
