This drive can seem scary, but if you drive in control and go slow it isn't bad at all. I would continue up to the top where the neighbourhoods are marked with different animal statues. Great for pictures. Sasquatch, cougar, ect.

We went to this lookout at dusk and it was light enough to see the entire area including the US. Not that far out of town and worth the effort.

Only a short drive from downtown Osoyoos, but what a view. Easy parking, too, right off the highway. Bring a camera.
