Beautiful British Columbia! There are so many amazing sights for us to see without going far from home. Here are some photos taken during recent trips down from home in Kamloops to Hope, BC which is a three hour drive.
|Kamloops early morning|
|Spences Bridge, BC|
|Hoodoos in the Thompson Canyon|
|Thompson River rapids|
|Lilloet Mountain Range|
|Othello Tunnels, Hope, BC|
The Othello Tunnels are a nice walk off the parking lot through pretty mossy trees while the river rushes by. It is part of the Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park near Hope, BC and closes when the summer season ends so no Autumn visits. The Coquihalla River rushes through the rocky crevices and the tunnels were built for the decommissioned railways of long ago, both great sights to see.
|Bridal Falls, BC|
A return trip on Hwy 1 brings us past Bridal Falls where we see the changing of the leaves. We drive to Hope then onto the Coquihalla Highway 5 for a different scenic trip home. I will share that trip another time.
