Kamloops Lake from Viewpoint

Kamloops Lake sits just west of Kamloops on the Thompson River. These photos were taken from a roadside viewpoint just west of the Tobiano Resort on Hwy 1.

Panorama of Kamloops Lake (8 stitched photos – Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS).

Tranquille near Kamloops Lake

In the first panorama you can see the abandoned Tranquille Sanatorium in the distance. The second panorama (with a wider lens) is from the same vantage point on Tranquille Road just outside Lac du Bois Provincial Park near Kamloops, BC. Just beyond the flooded field in the foreground lies Kamloops Lake.

Tranquille on the edge of Lac Du Bois Provincial Park rock

Not sure what species, but there seems to be a lot of lichen on this rock. Really wish I’d had a tripod handy… was really windy here and evidently my 100mm macro lens did not feel like sitting still that much (many discarded shots of this lichen).
