beautiful Okanagan In Super Natural British Columbia
The Okanagan Valley is in south-central British Columbia in western Canada, extending about 200 km north from the American border.
Cities in the region include Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton. The area is one of the largest producers of fruit and wine in Canada.
The valley is named after the First Nations Tribe of Okanagan of the Interior Salish, who gave the valley its name, translated roughly as "place of water."
There are 100 lakes within a 100 km radius of Kelowna.
For you cryptozoology buffs, the Okanagan Lake is said to be the home of a world-famous lake monster named Ogopogo. Not to mention this is the stomping grounds of the infamous Big Foot or as we call him here, "Sasquatch."
