Haha, yes, Kamloops is in beautiful British Columbia Canada.
It lies at the very northern tip of the Sonoran desert, so we're a very dry desert like climate, with small cacti, not the ones typically associated with the Sonoran desert.
It's an amazing place with extremely dark skies only a short distance from town.

I really enjoy the grandeur of Milky Way photos. But I've never had the opportunity to actually see anything like that in real life. Maybe I need to visit Kamloops
