Forest Fire

Filed under: Black & White, Nature, Travel, Trees — collin orthner @ 2:47 am


Thanksgiving is when my family goes on our annual trip out to Kelowna, B.C. to visit my parents and usually end up driving through the Kicking Horse Pass and Rogers Pass to get there. This year however, due to some other commitments in Edmonton, we ended up going through Jasper and Kamloops along the Yellowhead Highway instead.


Just a bit north of Kamloops lies the small town of Barrier where a devastating fire rolled through in 2003, nearly destroying the town . It took out huge areas of forests as well of which these images show.
