Richter Pass

Here's a view from my recent holiday that never fails to please my eyes, the Richter Pass. The Similkameen Valley runs mostly east and west, roughly parallel and not very distant from the international border with the USA. The nearby Okanagan Valley runs north and south. The Richter Pass connects the two valleys. It is not often this spectacular yellow shade nor are the hills usually so green, effects of an unusually wet spring. These pastures are part of a large cattle ranch, another important agricultural aspect of this area.

One would love to spend a whole lifetime counting the flowers each.
Please have a nice Sunday.

Stunning capture -- from the gold of the flowers, to the white of the clouds and mountain peaks to the sliver of road winding through the hills. This looks like a slice of heaven.
