Kamloops South - The Land, the Life, the Light

A black bear sow rests in a pine tree south of Kamloops, BC, Canada I thought, after writing the previous four blogs on Kamloops and surrounding areas, including Sun Peaks that I had covered all the bases from my local travels.

Sun Peaks, BC - A Mountain High Adventure in 30 Images

When the phone rings or I get an email notification and the caller or sender is someone I know from either Sun Peaks Resort or Tourism Sun Peaks, I still get a bit excited, I can’t lie 😊  On numerous occasions I’ve described to people how it feels to be at the resort and without fail I say it’s like hopping on a plane for a three hour flight and th[...]

Tourism Valemount - Mountain Lifestyle

One of the best things I can say about working with Tourism Valemount and VARDA (Valemount & Area Recreation Development Association) is the people.  There is a warm, family type of atmosphere whenever I get the opportunity to work in the community.  That of course always leads me to feel like I'm going on vacation when I make the 3.25 hour journey north[...]
