The Thompson Trek

Kamloops, B.C.
June 21 - 24, 2012

The 30th Annual June Tour was held in Kamloops, at the South Thompson Inn.  26 cars and 60 people attended and spent three days touring the area.  The weather was not typical - sun, rain, and flooding added to the memorable weekend

The tour featured some beautiful back road drives.  Friday took us through the Barnhartvale area, on to Pritchard, and over the Pinantan Lake Road.  It was a tough climb!  Lunch was at Mackenzie Meadows, where young Lyla put on an impressive demonstration of how they train their horses.

Saturday's drive was up the west side of the North Thompson as far as Rainbow's Roost.  After a delicious lunch everyone headed back before the torrential rains came down.  Sunday morning began with a Pancake breakfast hosted by the VCCC Kamloops Chapter.  Then the tour finished off at Pine Grove Centre where the staff and residents enjoyed seeing the ancient vehicles.  One woman named Olive was actually older than any of the cars!

Many thanks to the tour committee and the Kamloops Chapter for all the work that went into making The Thompson Trek a memorable weekend!
