My husband, Jim, and I traveled to Canada in Sept., 2007. to auto tour the Canadian Parks of Kootenay, Yoho, Banff, and Jasper. We saw many wonders highlighted by sighting grizzly bears and many big horn sheep. A must for this trip was Mount Robson Prov. Park which was definitely a highlight and a photographer's dream. From there we went to Wells Gray Prov. Park and were awed by Helmcken Falls. We stayed in Clearwater and got an early start on our way south toward Kamloops. We were headed to Keremeos and the Grist Mill and Gardens Heritage Site there. We love backroads and decided to drive down Dunn Lake Road instead of Yellowhead Highway. Sometimes the simple things we encounter on our vacations are the most memorable. We passed this Canadian Farm located beside the North Thompson River. The early morning fog rising from the river created a beautiful backdrop for the picturesque farm. The serenity and beauty of this scene was a 'Great Find' of our time in British Columbia.
