About 20 people stepped back in time during a hike Saturday morning in Kelowna's Scenic Canyon Regional Park.
The group participated in a free hike led by a park interpreter student who explained the geology of the Okanagan.
Among the interesting facts the hikers learned:
— 25,000 to 10,000 years ago, the whole region was covered in an ice sheet about two kilometres thick.
— Mission Creek lies in a deep fault, or crack, in the earth's crust.
— the rocks on the east side of Okanagan Lake are older than the rocks on the west side of the lake.
This three-hour hike is offered twice more — at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, and at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15. Pre-register at firstname.lastname@example.org.
