Kamloops and the Shuswap Lake region lie in the South Thompson Plateau, between the Coast Mountains and the Columbia Mountains. This means the area gets low amounts of rain, under 40 cm (1/3 as snow). The geology of the region is a combination of ancient volcanic and sedimentary rocks, some Jurassic (150 million year old) rocks, all of which were significantly effected by the Ice Age glaciers that retreated about 10,000 years ago. The climate is good for ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, lodgepole pine, grases, sagebrush, and prickly pear cactus.

Kamloops, with 70,000 residents, is a major forestry and food processing hub in the Interior of BC as the largest area city on the Trans-Canada and at the junction of area roads, rail lines and waterways.

Chase lies at the western edge of Little Shuswap Lake and the head of the South Thompson River. From here eastward to Sorrento, Salmon Arm and Sicamous is the famous Shuswap Lake vacation country, best know for its thousands of houseboats rented to vacationers from Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton (and even further afar). The Trans-Canada winds along the lake, which has over 1000 km of shoreline, and occasionally climbs up the forested hills that surround the lake (watch out for the area's bears and deer!). You may see signs of a massive 2005 forest fire along the NW shore of the lake.

Many farms along the lake date back to the pre-highway days a century ago, when the only way to ship farm produce was using the Shuswap Lake's paddle-wheeled steamers. Just south of Shuswap Lake is the Okanagan Lake fruit-growing region with over 75 wineries, with the towns of Enderby and Armstrong (famous for its cheese factory) leading to the larger centres of Vernon and Kelowna.


East of Sicamous, the Trans-Canada climbs over the Monashee mountain range, famous for its deep powder helicopter skiing on over 10 metres a year of annual snowfall. The mountains here climb to 2680 metres above sea level, and rise over a kilometer above the valley floors. The forests grow tall here, and visitors will notice the branches slope steeply, to help the snow slide off the branches. Lower elevations have lots of western hemlock and western red cedar, while higher elevations have lots of Douglas fir, aspen and western white pine, providing lots of resources for the area's logging and wood processing industries.

Midway between Sicamous and Revelstoke is Craigellachie, where the "last spike" on the Canadian Pacific Railroad was laid, connecting eastern Canada with British Columbia's Pacific Coast. Eagle Pass divides the Thompson River system to the west from the Columbia River system which flows into the Pacific 1500 kilometers downstream at Portland, Oregon which started out as a Hudson's Bay trading post, Fort Vancouver. The Columbia is heavily dammed for power generation, with the earthen Revelstoke Dam just north of town, the massive Mica dam upstream (140 km north of Revelstoke, and the world's second largest earthen dam), and the Keenleyside Dam downstream (270km south, near Castlegar).
