(015) River bank erosion
Excerpt from page 11 of "B.C.'s Inland Empire" by Erskine Burnett associated with this image: In the glare of a midsummer day the valley immediately east of Kamloops, with its Chinese vegetable gardens and alkali flats, is rather depressing, but as evening approached it takes on a beauty all its own. Centuries of erosion have worn the two rims of the valley into fantastic shapes - turrets and battlements and bastions. The deep gullies are now half in shadow and half in bright sunlight. Their bold outline is toned down and the shadows fell athwart each other in serried rows. The river gliding down the centre of the valley is a band of silver, and the outline of the valley itself is gradually lost in a bluish haze far to the east.
