(002) McIntosh Lookout
Excerpt from page 3 of "B.C.'s Inland Empire" by Erskine Burnett associated with this image: On the high ground overlooking the junction of the two rivers stands the McIntosh Lookout. This memorial was created by the Kamloops Rotarians in 1932 and is dedicated to the memory of James McIntosh, pioneer, and founder of our first grain mill and sawmill. So reads the inscription. The view of the rivers and bridges, of the city of Kamloops and of the valley beyond will linger long in the memories of all who halt for a few minutes at this vantage point on the Trans Canada Highway. On the upper slopes of the hill overlooking the meeting point of the two rivers lives the now famous "ice-bug", a survival of the glacial period which dies when brought down into warmer surroundings.
