KAMLOOPS

"Stopping off point:-"

Kamloops is a half way stopping over point when travelling from Jasper down to Vancouver after driving through the Rockies.

This town was larger than I expected, and quite surprised at the surrounding scenery.(which could be viewed from our hotel room, which was at the front of the hotel - see Hotel tip).

Some statistics:-
80,000 Population
annual hrs. of sunshine 2,048
Annual precipitation 25.61cm
Elevation above sea level 345m (1,131ft)
Climate - Semi Arid

Brief History.

After the fur trade arrived in 1812, Kamloops became the X roads for horse drawn pack trains and this continued through the gold rush in the 1850's. Even after the first permanent farmers arrived, and the Railway came through in 1893, Kamloops continues to be the resting stop for weary travellers.

As forestry and mining became the economic forces in the region, Kamloops has continued to grow since it's incorporate in 1893. Because of it's easy access to Vancouver with the opening of the Coquihalla Highway, Kamloops is fast becoming the permanent home of folks who have home based businesses or who have sought a less expensive and hurried life style.

When the Rocky Mountaineer dispels it's passengers, make sure you book the restaurant of your hotel early.
