Even now. with possibly the most neglected  piece of, motor road in Ihe province leading to  it, Mabel Lake is attracting hundreds. Fifteen,  Iwenlv and' thirty autos are parked by the roadside and lake front each Sunday during the  months of .June.

For nearly a  mile along the lake front families arc camped,  some for weeks and some for thc season. Thc  s'mplies for these camps come from Enderby.  Every merchant profits, and would profit more,  by the fuller development ol* this resort. Il is  too good a thing to. treat lightlv. If the road  were made easier for traffic and more safe,  there is not a drive in thc Okanagan comparable  with thai to Mabel Lake.
