Napa of the North

Our valley gets a fair bit of press, but not often from the New York Times: The Okanagan, a Napa of the North.

Update: This reminds me that I keep meaning to spend a couple of hours driving around taking some photos of all the orchards being ripped out around Summerland right now. It's getting to be a daily occurence to see the equivalent of a clearcut where there were apple, peach and cherry trees before. Then a few weeks later, the wires go up and little grape vines are poking up out of the ground.
