Photo: A Desert in Canada? Yup. Welcome To The BC Interior!

 Rolling hills covered in sagebrush, west of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.

The interior of British Columbia is a complete switchover compared to the perpetually wet coastal rainforests along the province’s Pacific coastline.  Home to cattle ranges, shortgrasses, and even the occasional cactus, the interior regions of BC, around the Kamloops area, as well as the entire Okanagan Valley boasts considerably drier and warmer conditions (except in winter, but that’s when it rains on the coast, so…) than their counterparts in Vancouver, making it an attractive getaway for those seeking a little sunshine and dry heat in their life, not to mention the opportunity to take in vistas like the portrayed above.
