The Wild West Still Exists at Lac Du Bois, British Columbia

Tucked in the scenic Thompson River Valley, just West of Kamloops, is one of the most wild and wondrous places in BC: the rolling hills of Lac Du Bois. The area was once a part of the Hudson Bay Brigade trail. Today, it is an exquisite landscape of pure wild west: sage brush, cacti, meadow Larks, big horned mountain sheep, cattle and trains. Every spring I arrive at my parent’s home and squeeze in a hike on the rolling hills of Lac Du Bois. I hope you enjoy a few photographs from my day:
