Hidden Homesteads: In the Backcountry Hills
In winter we sometimes head out into the hills to look for old homesteads. These can be spotted on Google Earth and some planning may be required to find a reasonable route to the sites. On a cold winter day I followed snowmobile tracks on backroads up into the hills south of Kamloops.
Doug writes for Kamloops Trails, a not-for-profit (and ad free) website, offering information on trails, waterways, routes, featured spots, viewpoints, and explorations in the outdoors in the Kamloops area (and beyond).
Doug started exploring this area in 1976 and continues to follow tracks and routes wherever they lead, with the aid of map, compass, GPSr and camera. After many dead-ends, but also many discoveries, he chose to share this information.
The Kamloops Trails website has a massive number of interesting posts and would be of interest to anyone in Kamloops who enjoys the outdoors. Visit the Kamloops Trails website at: http://www.kamloopstrails.net/My Blog Posts
