Canadian Rockies Road Trip – Kamloops, British Columbia

We arrived into Kamloops where we would stay for one night. The town was a rather depressing, industrial town with a large railway terminal.

Kamloops is a Canadian city in British Columbia, where the North and South Thompson rivers meet. Sun Peaks Resort’s hiking trails, bike park and numerous ski runs lie to the northeast. Cougars and bears inhabit the British Columbia Wildlife Park east of town. West, above Kamloops Lake are clay hoodoos (or spires). The riverside Secwepemc Museum & Heritage Park features the remains of a 2,000-year-old village.

We took a short walk at Kenna Cartwright Park which was a rather barren hillside with some views over the town.

Later in the afternoon we took a stroll through Riverside Park by the Thompson River. It was a small, pleasant park with some interesting graffiti, interesting art pieces and a lovely old railway bridge crossing the river.

The park is bordered by the Thompson River and Landsdowne Street. There is a monument in the park that indicates the height to which four different floods reached throughout the history of the park.

In the evening we had a great dinner at Brownstone Restaurant with a nice steak washed down with some good red wine. The staff were very friendly and gave us a wave as we left.
