Kamloops Clamber

While traveling between different field projects, I managed to find some time to roam around a couple random hills on the outskirts of Kamloops.  I wasn't really sure where to go, so I just picked a quiet side road to meander my way through to Vernon.  I decided I would head along Barnhartvale Rd., look for non-fenced areas, and finish by checking out Buse Lake.  Rather than get all verbose, I'll just make this more of a visual journey.

  1. The butterfly photo that you have is beautiful and I have never seen this type anywhere. What a gorgeous place to live and I hope to move there in the near future.
