Our trailer manufacturer, Escape Trailers, was hosting a rally in Osoyoos, BC May 25-28, 2017. We decided to take the opportunity to attend and extend the vacation up to Jasper and Banff national parks and back home through southern BC. Following are some pictures taken at the rally and some fauna encountered in the area.
