Trying to capture the force of Helmcken Falls, Wells Gray Provincial Park

This was my first Canadian stop on my August 2009 "This Sure Beats Working" tour. I hit Wells Gray after a flight from Seattle to Kelowna and several hours of driving through the smoke filled Okanagan Valley. The area around Kamloops was hit with some really bad forest fires - some of which were still active - so the skies were very hazy and smoke filled.

 

I spent a night at Wells Gray - a nice park noted for the waterfalls. Definitely worth a detour and more than one day to check out the trails and falls.
