QV2018: Day 9: Travel day to Kamloops

1 11 2018

Today was a travel day — Vancouver to Kamloops. It started out cloudy and rainy and stayed that way well past Hope, BC. Eventually the cloud lifted and the rain stopped, and for a brief while we had sunshine. Even with snow all around there were fires near Lac Le Jeune — I’m not sure if they were scheduled burn-offs, or the remnants of the terrible fires that came through the area a couple of months ago.

We arrived in Kamloops mid-afternoon, and had the rest of the day to ourselves. Some went to the nearby laundromat, while I walked a couple of streets almost into the main part of town to look for some lunch, which I found in a kebab shop nearby.

Tonight we have a group dinner at a local restaurant, then tomorrow we have another workshop day.

We were in Kamloops in mid-September and I guess we timed it right since we had blue sky and no snow. We even made a detour and went back to Vancouver via Whistler. I definitely wouldn’t have wanted to drive that road in snow.
