Alien Architecture in the Okanagan

Harold’s observations are always so interesting. Here I learned a lot. I have a hillock of weaver ants in the back forty, and somewhere a video that shows them making their amazing house. Apparently our local First Nations made houses the same way. And I see that the new meeting center in Enderby appears to be based on the summer house design. And yes, the house designs sure do resemble the weaver-ant houses. That’s obviously the way to build things in the Okanagan!
