Fall is the Perfect Time of Year: Scenic Sunday, October 3, 2010

I think Fall is the perfect time of year. I can never get enough of the Fall colours though when I see the leaves fall, I do get saddened that winter is around the corner. I was never one who loved the snow. Though I might enjoy snow for a few days, I think the childhood memories of freezing cold, freezing a few toes and winters which dragged endlessly on, are never far from me. I do love one thing about winter which I will leave for the winter season to blog about *smile.

In the meantime, let me leave you with some final snap shots of Kamloops. These are likely the last photos I will take before I depart for my home on the coast on Sunday. It is Fall now but these shots are landscape shots of the city from the vantage point of the mountain. As you can see, the city is beautifully located alongside rivers and nestled in the valley.  When you drive in at night and see all the city lights it is particularly beautiful.  (Click on any photo to enlarge).








I hope you enjoyed these photos of Kamloops. If you would like to see some of the city in it's Fall splendour, please click here. Otherwise do join others here from around the globe for more beautiful Scenic Sundays.

Thanks for the images Penny - the river seems so peaceful ...

I've seen many images of fall (or 'autumn' as we call it) in North America and here in Africa we get nothing comparable ... the trees just seem to change from green to gray or brown from one day to the next ...

Hope your mom is doing well and here's wishing you a safe journey home ...

Thank you Cat!

Hi Graham, looks can be deceiving. The river actually has quite a strong undercurrent and swimming in the river is limited to a very small area.

Thanks for your well wishes for mom's health and my journey. Mom is scheduled for discharge Monday. I do hope she is able to return home. My brother will help make sure she gets there.

The last time I was in Kamloops was when I worked in Kelowna for a year, '83-'84! So it was fun to revisit through your lens.
