Every time I go to or through BC I go out of my way to take hwy 97 through the Okanagan Valley.
This is a fruit lovers heaven.
Think of any pit fruit you can, plus almost any berry you can name, and throw in a pear or an apple or a pomegranate or melon and you have the Okanagan Valley in the summer.
You cannot drive this highway more than 10 klicks in the summer without finding a fruit shack or a "pick your own" orchard.
Take your time on this drive... pick and shop.
To me none of God's gifts compare.
Don't buy more then one of anything because right down the road will be another of something and you will buy more and eat it and get awful gas!
But... its worth it.
This year I was diverted from this garden of Eden by the bella cool fires and had to skip 97 altogether.


But I did find some good competition..
The Yakima and Ellensburg valleys in WA
Good wine country here too with three dozen wineries most with tasting.

And of course there is always the Willamette in OR.

Talk about PEARS!!!!

You cant beat the Pacific northwest for Summer fruit.

Hi: ronsmith100... If you like fruit and wine then the Niagara area of Ontario is right up your alley. It's not just a pretty place it's a micro clime all its own. On some of the sideroads you can actually walk into the peach and nectarine orchards!!! What an aroma...and did I mention the ICEWINE!!!

We hit Cherry season last July in Montana as we went through Polson and then around the N side of Flathead Lake on the way to Glacier Natl Park. Stands every mile with tree ripened cherries, mmmm.
We bought about 10lbs at one stop and ate almost half of them by the time we got to Glacier. Not recommended, but hard to not do...
