A grad's Superflight from Kamloops to 108-Mile-House
March 6, 2021

For her Superflight, Ms X (remaining anonymous) elected to fly from Kamloops to the Resort Community of 108-Mile-House.

So we did just that - with David, Janine, and our dog Zeus.

The flight tooks us along Kamloops lake, the Thompson river, and then North along Hwy 97 past a deep valley called "The Chasm" - a very scening set of canyons and cliff walls that can only be seen by air.

A little South of "The Chasm", we saw these spectacular formations.
Flying about "The Chasm". That ground at the base of the cliffs continues to slope down at a good 60 degrees.

Despite being mid-March, Kamloops was sunny and quite warm. We, naively, expected the the same at 108-Mile. We found 108-Mile sunny, but not very warm. Still, we had a wonderful picnic lunch on the scenic golf course just 10 minutes walk from the airport.

After lunch we decided to try and walk down to the lake, but it was a bit too icy on some of the steeper sections.

Most airports have some kind of a "Pilot Lounge" for visiting pilots to relax in, have a coffee, etc. The one at 108-Mile-Airport was one of the prettiest we had ever seen.

We helped ourselves to a couple of free cookies.

I bet it's even more spectacular here in the summer. We'll have to come back and make the hike down to the lake.
