Today we started out in Jasper. From the picture it may be hard to tell, but the Rockies are basically two chains with some large hills dividing them in the centre. Our plan was to stop in Kamloops but we ended up going all the way to Vancouver. We're finally here!
Kamloops is one of the oddest places I have ever been. It looks like some Mediterranean area approaching desert. Although we went through the city it was very commercialized and seemed somewhat cookie-cutter. There were major brands and big box stores everywhere with little in the way of a local culture. The most interesting part of the city was the scenery surrounding it, visible in the picture below.
