Last summer we took a train across the Canadian Rockies and this was a shot on the first morning as we approached Kamloops BC. I didn’t sleep much and was up early to capture the train as we followed the Thompson River. I must go back and do this again.
This is about an hours drive north of Vancouver and is one of the spots you can catch a ferry to Vancouver Island. There are campsites nearby and I could see the smoke from campfires already started. It’s such a great feeling to be surrounded by these huge mountains. The people in this part of Canada are into the outdoors in a big way. On this afternoon I saw campers, kayakers, fishermen, rock climbers and cyclist, not to mention people just walking around enjoying the view. When you’re surrounded with this much beauty it’s only natural to spend a bit of time outside enjoying it, don’t you think?
