- Thanks for your comment, yes this area is a extinct volcanic field, our area has been glaciated about 6 times, in 2 million years. We Canadians R very glad U enjoyed our area, in fact our area is the Southern part of British Columbia, actually a little pocket desert, that is dry, and actually has pear cactus etc. We all including you, live around the Ring of fire, and yes the world is changing, nothing can be taken for granted. So .. enjoy this and every moment, including your next trip up here. We would love to take time to show you around our wonderful landscapes and vineyards.. thanks for your comments.. google Osoyoos, Oliver or Penticton BC Canada take a look, again..

Two construction sites in Kelowna provide evidences of past Glaciers, right hear where we stand, swim and recreate. Kokanee Trout, actually Sock-eye salmon trapped when the in land meltwaters raged south, as native legends pronounce. Emptying the inland meltwaters of the pre-historic glaciers that covered our Okanagan, over 6 different times, in last 2 million years. Knox mountain last erupted 40-50 million years ago, geologists say? Enjoy the presintation at "flickr" dreamwalkersworld and learn more about the Pre-History of a land around a sea that covered all the cities of our Okanagan Valley the inland "Sea of Phanta" Dreamwalkers world .. 2KB40 AD .. google it

Some of the unusual formations in the rocks under the surface of Okanagan Lake cave, and unusual indentations.. where carved and sanded by the bubbles within turbulent votexes .. like little tornadoes, within the waters flooding down into the south deserts.. after the Ice dam broke.. the tornado water votexes would have a meandering tail of bubbles, that would scour out deposits leaving the rock indented like thay are up and down the Lake, after the inland sea flowed away... more at "flikr" dreamwalkersworld ... enjoy the tour of our pre historic Okanagan valley.. as it came out from under the inland meltwater Sea of Phanta... 2KB40AD... 4,000+ years ago... gordo..

Great news everybody!!! I found a really big rock by the side of the road, I estimate it is at least 27.3 million years old, how did it get to be by the side of the road?? Where did it come from?? It wasn't here yesterday....This is a real conundrum.
I am an expert geologist and volcanologist and I am confused....$ibling$ R real...Elvis jr is my great buddy.
