This is the highway that links the Fraser Valley to various communities within the Southern Interior which includes Merritt, Quilchena, Kamloops, and then connects into the 5A which further goes up into other areas.
This location was quite convenient as it was located around pretty much everything. It is perfect for those people who are wanting to visit various parts of Kamloops, as well as those who have loved ones in the hospital.
We had dinner on the first night at this location. It is quite close to the Accent Inn, and offers a lot of different food.
There were a lot of fishing areas along this area. Beware though through some of the stretch where the fish are, there are also some bears that are home to this area. We also saw some bighorn sheep on the side near the hills.
Mount Lolo Road, is one of those roads that will lead you up to an observatory area that will allow you to look at all sorts of picturesque scenery. For driving, you should drive carefully as there is a potential for viewing wildlife, as we saw deer on the way up this road. Also, you should have at least an AWD, or a 4x4 vehicle, as there are some really rough parts along this road.
We were looking at trying to go the back way to this location. We got a little ways up the hill, and noticed that there was a huge herd of cattle. We had to wait until they decided to disperse, and then we were able to get through. Then we travelled a little bit more, and we came across this sunken vehicle that we wanted to take a picture of. We also then went further, but the roads started to become a lot harsher, and required a 4x4 vehicle, so we decided that we would not go any further.
We were looking in this area before we took our way back down to Vancouver again. We noticed that the Day's Inn hotel doesn't exist because of a fire a few years ago. We also noticed the area where the new racing track would be.
