Focus Friday: High Country

Isn’t it a bit weird that most of us only spend time at high elevations in the coldest, most hostile months of the year? Now that the snow is flying, everyone is dusting off their skis and snowboards and getting ready to ascend out of the valley. Through the warm months, we forget about the Okanagan’s legitimate alpine spots — especially in the Monashees east of Vernon, and the Cascades west of Osoyoos. The Mark Berger Traverse is probably under a pile of snow by now, but when Ryan took this shot last month, it captured the mystery and epic scale of experiences above the treeline.
