Photographer's Note

This is another example of the dry, almost desert like conditions that can be found in some areas of the normally very green and lush British Columbia. This was taken near Savona, west of Kamloops, just off the TransCanada Highway. This area is to the east of a major mountain range (Coast Mountains) where most of the rain falls. After the mountains, the air comes down to a lower elevation, becoming warmer and drier. Only 30-50km to the west is lush rainforest, and here the climate is so dry that trees can't grow, as seen by the dead tree here.
