The Yellowhead 4-H Club Photography kids went to Sun Peaks on the annual Sun Peaks High Five Day that raises awareness and donations for the Kamloops Food Bank – and we brought items for the food bank as well.
We took pictures of many things, such as flowers, people, and even the chairlifts. The 4-H outing went from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The first thing that we did was go the lodge to get tickets for the chairlift.
When we got to the top of the chairlift we started off by going on Vista Trail. We took pictures of wildflowers and many other things that caught our eye.
While we were taking pictures we got stuck in a hail and thunder storm!
We all decided as a group to head back down to the Sunburst Bar and Eatery to warm up.
Lightning was hitting near the chairlift, so we were camped out at the restaurant for quite a long time.
After the storm stopped most of us went back outside to take more pictures. Every time there was lightning or thunder we had to wait another half hour for the chairlift to start. A lot of us took a truck to get back down to the lodge.
At the end of the day we took wonderful pictures and had fun while we were at it.
