Exploring Jack Seaton and Area

This morning we had another hike with some friends and their children. We have a wonderful park a few kilometers away from us, and we have only explored it once.  Today we set out to do some more exploring of Jack Seaton Park. Apparently though the trails we followed were not actually part of the park. However Jason kind of knew where we were going. He led us up to an old mining site where a couple of old mine shafts are located.

Off we go

Jack Seaton Hike What a wonderful way to spend a beautiful Okanagan morning.

This was the second family hike we have organised, and we are looking forward to more to come. Hopefully we have great weather for the hike in June so we can go swimming after.
