The HOLM Stretch | August 25, 2023
Thanks for popping in!
With permission from J.P. Squire, (aka The Sheriff) we are happy to include some SOS (Secret Okanagan Spots)
Timing is everything, especially in outdoor recreation (and outdoor recreation columns).
After writing about Myra Canyon and Knox Mountain Park East during the past two weeks, there is news about both. So this week's Secret Okanagan Spots will focus one more time on Knox Mountain East.
The Phlox Loop Lookout is a Secret Okanagan Spot in the SOS series but it may not remain a secret for long after a trail map for part of Knox Mountain Park East was posted at the Grainger Road trailhead (off Clifton Road). The loop is a short distance north of the trailhead and provides a panoramic view of Dilworth Mountain and downtown Kelowna.

WHAT ELSE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
Is homeownership within reach?
The housing affordability index can tell you.
It’s a tool that compares how much money most Canadians have with how much they would need to buy a home.
Using this ratio, the housing affordability index shows how affordable housing is (or isn’t) right now.

With smoke lingering in the air in and around the North Okanagan, it's a great time to implement some natural resources to cleanse the indoor air that you and your family are breathing in.
