Not many videos were taken, but here are all the clips from the trip along with some photos as well.

Dryhills at KBR
First day of riding at the bike ranch. My first Kamloops dry hills line. I'll remember this one for a while.

KBR is littered with steep, loose chutes like this one.

After one day at Sun Peaks and one at KBR, we drove to Silver Star, where we rode for two days before going to see some friends of my parents in Vernon.

Down day at the lake in Vernon. Will is ejected with humorous consequences.

After Vernon, we drove back through Kamloops to get some gold sunset light at KBR. The next morning we bagged a couple more shots before heading to Tsawwassen to catch a ferry back to the Island.

KBR trails
The next morning we had a few hours to ride so we started with some shuttle laps before going to find some lines to shoot.

The dust was a far cry from the loamy and wet conditions on the island.

My favourite shot from the whole trip. Take away me and the vegetation and that could be the moon.

That is all.

Huge thank you to my parents for driving us and for enduring our whining when you missed the shots.

 Dude that's awesome. What did you think of KBR? I've ridden there several times and my da pyrite trail is 3 amigos with the huge jumps right by the road. So dusty there all year round.
