in the snow covered Kamloops.
Spotted 3 eagles.
35. Flying Kamloops,
North Ridge, Mount
Peter & Paul, Winter
River Sand Bars, Dec 12, 2012
Beautiful December day and ideal conditions for
flying. Ground is partially covered with show, which makes the features of the
hilly terrain around Kamloops
stand out. Took many excellent pictures of that complex Kamloops landscape.
34. Flying Kamloops,
South Thompson River Sand Bars, Nov 25, 2012
Beautiful chilly day, ideal flying conditions to buzz
in around Kamloops.
Beautifully complex above and below water sand bars give different perspective
on this river.
33. Flying Kamloops,
Ajax Gold Mine,
Knutsford, Nov 5, 2012
Wanted to fly cross country, but the wind increased
significantly into 40 km/h headwind. This would be potentially dangerous in the
mountain valley, creating serious downdrafts. Turned around in Knutsford into
very calm weather at the airport.
32. Flying Kamloops,
Copper Creek, Nov 2, 2012
Flew this route previously, but my video battery quit
in the first 5 minutes. I could not miss to capture this spectacular scenery to
share with my friends. Very ragged mountain terrain north of huge Kamloops Lake. Flew over two mysterious places Frederick and Copper
31. Flying Kamloops, North Ridge and Sand Bars, Oct, 28,
off to video mountains, but it was too turbulent. Went back and stayed above South
Thomson river sand bars. They are so beautiful and intricate in their
configuration above and below the water.
30. Kamloops-Barrier-Kamloops, 130
km, Oct 5, 2012
My second long, cross country flight through and over
the mountains. Battling cold and full bladder, I made round trip 130 km in 2
hours. Unfortunately, camera batteries failed by the first click, so I do not
have any photos.

Les Larkin, Kamloops

trilling flight over the river sand bars and very low with sharp turns.
28. Trike Flight Kamloops
- Cache Creek - Kamloops
in Sep 29, 2012
My longest and the most adventurous flight cross
country to another airport located between mountains. Check the south approach
where runway is behind the hill.
This was a major milestone in my flying career. My
first, truly cross-country flight.
27. AirBorne Trike Flying in Kamloops Sep 17, 2012
Local flight above beautiful scenery. Close up look to
Ajax mine which
supposed to reopen operation under Polish company ownership. Majority of local
residents do not like it, because it is very close to city residential area. Kamloops, Knutsford, Ajax, Jacko Lake

18. Flying in Kamloops, BC
with GoPro on the Stick in July 4, 2012
Finally, I was brave enough to try mount GoPro
video camera on Xshot telescopic stick to get more interesting video angles.
Most of the time, hang glider requires both hands to fly it, but the weather
was very good... I did not want the
"apparatus" to go through the prop above the mountains.

Played over South
sand bars, in 2nd part of the video. Never realized vastness of these sand
deposits until I flew over. All these bars are under several meters of water
half of the time when snow melts from the mountains. This is perfect place for
an emergency landing, which is normally not easy place to do in Kamloops. Kamloops, Ajax
mine, Knutsford, sand bars
