I thought I would take you all on a little trip around my part of the world….
If I’m lucky and it isn’t raining, I’ll get to look upon this massive beauty tomorrow.
I enjoyed walking through the cool damp tunnels where it becomes almost pitch black then out into the bright sunlight to see this raging river flowing beneath the boards which had one time supported train tracks.
We took a trip to Kamloops a couple summers ago, below is a picture of the train ride we took in Kamloops. The trip started out fairly sunny but by the time we were on our return a huge thunderstorm had moved in. The train stopped right in the middle of the bridge in this picture while lightening and thunder flashed and boomed all around us. The storm sent my daughter into a panic attack. She never liked loud noises and thunderstorms always scared her. One of the people working on the train came through making a joke about the storm which sent my daughter even further into hysterics. I asked him to please be quiet, he apologized and got her a blanket. Everyone on the train was concerned about her and tried helping, but all she could do was cling to me, shaking and crying. She has gotten better about storms but none of them since have been anything like that one so I don’t know how she would react if she ended up in similar circumstances again.
Pictures from the ranch where we stayed one night:
We drove west of Kamloops, spent some time at a fossil dig, then took these pictures on our way back. The water was so smooth it was like looking in a mirror. If you enlarge the last picture you might see a boat in the water.
Just a couple pictures of some flowers. Most towns in Fraser Valley hang beautiful hanging baskets that are full of the most beautiful flowers all summer long. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of British Columbia, no matter where you look, no matter what time of the year, this place is full of beauty I never tire of looking at.
I hope you enjoyed my little tour.
