Napier Ranch Conservancy At the End of the Year
As temperatures dropped and days became shorter, I hiked up the access road to the Napier Ranch Conservancy. It was the day before the snows fell so the route was dry/frozen. At the entrance to the Conservation Area is a sign and a gate. It was quiet and there were no livestock on the slopes.
It took a while to hike over the slope break for a view up the Trapp Lake Valley.
The sun shone through clouds creating a silver light over the old corrals and fences at the trailhead.
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
