Quick work trip today...some scenery shots

Postby loopie [OP] » May 11th 2011, 8:32am

Only about 1hr 20min south of here on the Coquihalla hwy...major elevation changes...beautiful scenery. I love this drive, which I get to make 6-8x a yr :driving:
Leave Kamloops at 1133ft, crest at 4738ft, down to Merritt at 1950ft, up to the Coq summit at 4068ft and drop down to Hope 138ft...turn around and go back. Sure works out the ear drums...it's ginda harsh if you're plugged up!!! :cry:

A nice pull out that actually has a nice soft sandy beach just down the bank...
