This blog deviates from my normal blog as it doesn't contain many pictures of wildlife. Instead I am utilizing it to vent my frustration with the tourist train in Lillooet. It is described as "one of the most scenic rail trips in the world, along the shore of Seton Lake, surrounded by high mountains and near vertical cliffs. The 2 car Kaoham Shuttle train runs daily between Lillooet and Seton Portage." However the train is mostly for locals but Fridays, tourists may purchase a round trip ticket for $10.
|We began our trip with friends Art and Marlene. We initially decided to camp on Kootenay Lake. Our first stop was Kekuli Campsite in Vernon where the California Quail were abundant.|
|Here is our camp at Davis Creek Campground on Kootenay Lake. This is one of the most scenic campgrounds we have experienced.|
|It was here we discussed the Lillooet train ride. We headed to Kaslo where a nice lady at the information centre searched her computer and found all the information we needed.|
|On Tuesday I phoned the number she provided and left a message with the Kaoham answering machine. I explained we wanted 4 round trips for the coming Friday and left our names.|
|Here we are early Friday morning, waiting for the train to arrive.|
|This is a map of the total distance of our trip. Notice the distance between Kaslo and Lillooet.|
