    It seems the pics I took were more to illustrate the smoke than being Joe Tourist. On top of that, about an hour into the trip I realized that I had forgot to pack my Canon. Anyhoo.....smokey pictures it shall be. The first two are just north of Williams Lake where a large portion of the evacuees were from.

    After picking up #2 daughter in Kamloops (9hrs. driving) it was decided to spend the night in Hope, where Sylvester Stalones "First Blood" was filmed; wife & #2 included...

    The next two pics aren't mine but were posted Sat. Aug. 05 and show the difference before and during the wild fires The top picture is Kamloops and the bottom one is Williams Lake. The air quality this day in Kamloops, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst, was 49.

    Lund, B.C., the start of Highway 101. Lund Hotel and dock

    In the back ground, what was once the worlds largest single unit mill, at it's peak employing 2200 workers and now down to a few hundred.

    Looking across the Georgia Straight to where Vancouver Island should be, 12 miles away

    IMG_2684.JPG
    The smoke made some interesting sunsets, Vancouver Island and Texada Island ferries included

    IMG_2692.jpg
    Powell River is located 90 miles up coast from Vancouver, with the 2 ferries one has to take to get there, the travel time is 5hrs. There has always been talk of making a highway or bridge(s) to make this shorter. Having logged in some of the areas, I know the winter upkeep on the roadway would be a nightmare and I'm sure the 2 bridges would cost a fortune. I kinda cut off the Langdale ferry route at the bottom center but you get the picture

    One of the most beautiful areas that I have visited. Sad to see the smoke affecting it.

    .... there's so much more to BC than Vancouver. I have vivid memories of Cariboo country, Cash Creek, Williams Lake, Quesnel and much more from 1961. But the interior and coast are like two different countries. Walked across Rogers Pass highway from Revelstoke to Golden when the highway was still being built
