On our way home from the Okanagan valley we stopped in Manning park to take a hike in the alpine meadow. We were pretty early, which meant that the sun was just starting to peek over the tops of the mountains and the blue haze hadn’t quite lifted from the valley below.
On the way up we took a brief reprieve from the seemingly endless winding, unsealed road, to admire the view. Here we met some incredibly friendly and massively cute chipmunks.
The meadow was beautiful and populated by some awesome plants, the name of which I have no idea (sorry Dad). They look like my hair in the morning, and just because of that they’re probably my favourite of all the wild plants that we came across. Given the incredibly beautiful flowers we came across in the meadow, that’s really saying something.
